The firm of Auguste Lacarrière sent exhibits to the first International Exhibition in London in 1851. At that time they seem to have occupied two Paris addresses, 9 rue St Elizabeth and 55 rue Meslay, as well as another outlet in Limoges. They are recorded as showing "specimens of lustres, sconces, chandeliers, medallions, etc." By the 1862 Exhibition they were only recorded at the St Elizabeth address and showed "appareils à gaz de fonte, de zinc et de bronze." Nevertheless, their exhibit was highly praised and the business, now called A. Lacarrière, Père et Fils et Cie, received a medal for good design and fabrication.
