Registered on the 16th of may 1884, Alphonse Debain won Gold Medal at the Universal Exhibition of 1889 in Paris with this ingenious asparagus grip. While they produced grips in many different styles, it is those from the beginning of the 20th century that are the best off all, and which proved to be greatest success.

This innovative system, but also this model in particular, was taken up by other goldsmiths such as the prestigious Maisons Christofle and appears in the 1900 catalog of Puiforcat under the number 6155. Proof that the nicest french asparagus grips are undeniably those made by the Maison Debain.
