Note: Eugène Feuillâtre (1870-1916) was gifted goldsmith and sculptor, but his most exceptional talent is seen in his enamel work. Feuillâtre was head of René Lalique's enameling workshop from 1890 to 1897 and he was considered one of the best craftsmen in this field at the time. He began on his own in 1898, displaying his works successfully at the Salon de la Société des Artistes Français and at the Salon de la Société des Artistes Décorateurs. In 1900 he was awarded a gold medal at the Paris World Exhibition.
