The "Galet" collection is representative of the classic elegance and the finest quality silver produced by Ercuis. The Art Deco style with its clear, geometric shapes inspired Ercuis’ designers to produce this "Galet" collection. The French word "Galet" translates into English as pebble. This collection resembles the pebbles to be found in rivers which, over decades, have been polished smooth by the water flowing over them.
The distinctive feature of many of the items in the collection, such as the "Galet" vase, the little "Galet" bowl or the "Galet" orchid pot, are the little round feet that resemble small, polished pebbles. Other items in the collection such as the "Galet" salt and pepper shakers or the "Galet" knife rests, lie so snugly in the hand that you want to touch these precious, silverplated designs again and again.
