Founded in 1820 by the two brothers Emile and Joseph-Marie Puiforcat in Paris, Puiforcat became quickly known for its fine craftsmanship, but its renown is owed to Jean Puiforcat, from the fourth generation of the family. A silversmith, sculptor, and designer, he established the company in the avant-garde of modern silverwork. Regarded as the most important French Art Deco silversmith, his signature pieces are characterized by clean architectural lines that blend functionality and art.

Puiforcat silverware is handmade in France by the House of Puiforcat, silversmith since 1820. The silver-plated Cardinal collection is a spin-off of Richelieu flatware, fashioned in sterling silver. Created from a late 17th century drawing, the Cardinal collection combines traditional style with sophisticated modernity in an evolution of classic sterling silver Richelieu flatware.
