Description

The vibrant enamel work of Huaud Frères has long been admired by many collectors, considered today as the best known and most prolific family of enamellers of their time. The father, Pierre Huaud I (1612 -1680), was a Protestant of French origin who moved to Geneva, where he became an inhabitant in 1630. He finished his apprenticeship as a goldsmith with Laurent Légaré in 1634 and soon after became a Master Goldsmith. His three sons also became enamel painters: Pierre II (1647-c.1698), Jean-Pierre (1655-1723) and the younger brother Ami (1657-1729) were appointed enamel painters by the Brandenburg Elector Frederick III.
