Andre' Aucoc was one of the most celebrated Parisian goldsmiths and jewellers of the 19th century, along with Odiot, Christofle and few others. The firm was founded in the 1830's and its works were shown at French national exhibitions in 1827, 1839 and 1844. Aucoc was also present at the Great World Exhibition in London in 1851, where they won a Prize Medal. Andre' succeeded to his father in 1887, and died in Paris in 1911. This exceptionally fine and heavy candelabra are a fine example of the importance and relevance of the firm in the late 19th century.
