SILVER ADVERTISING:
ORFEVRERIE D'ERCUIS

The firm was founded in 1867 by Adrien Céleste Pillon, on the small village of Ercuis, 50 km north of Paris (France).
Since 1880 the firm was active with a sale room and commercial offices in Paris.
In 1908 the firm became "La Société nouvelle de l'Orfèvrerie d'Ercuis" under the management of Georges Maës.
Maës family continued to manage the firm until the 1980s, when the Rouget family took over the control of the company. In the same years the firm bought Ravinet d'Enfert, another great French silver manufacturer.
The "Centaur" is the trade mark of the company.
