The beginnings of Ercuis
The young priest Adrien Célest Pillon did not have a luxury empire in mind when he opened a silver manufactory in the tiny village of Ercuis French department of Oise in 1867; he was more focused on the religious edification and financial future of his fellow men. Pillon produced silver liturgical objects in Ercuis – until his manufactory went bankrupt four years later.
Ercuis: Silverware for grand hotels and luxury liners
After reopening, the silver manufactory Ercuis concentrated on a new market, focusing on manufacturing silver cutlery and other silver tableware. The grand hotels on the Riviera were soon among its most important customers. Right into the second half of the twentieth century, people dining on many luxury liners and even in the Orient Express were using Ercuis silverware. Today, one finds the flowing elegant forms of the elegant silverware from Ercuis in luxury hotels, on the tables of top restaurants or on board planes with VIP furnishings.
Sterling silver and silverplated cutlery from Ercuis
Ercuis uses a silver alloy that includes copper as well as nickel, which makes the silver harder. Ercuis has honored its tradition of perfect handcraftsmanship for the last five generations. Apart from sterling silver cutlery and silverplated cutlery, Artedona’s collection also offers numerous other original and exclusive tableware products from Ercuis. There are also silver picture frames and christening presents to choose from as well as a uniquely charming selection of bar accessories.
