Following the completion of his apprenticeship, the celebrated gold box maker Jean Formey worked as compagnon at the Gobelins between 1741 and 1754. He became master in Paris on 17 July 1754, sponsored by Antoine Clérin, from the pont au Change where he remained for thirty years at the sign of the ville de Pontoise. His trade card advertises that: ‘Formey Md Orfévre Joyallier Bijoutier, Fabrique, Vend, Achete, & Troque toutes sortes de Joyalleries Bijouteries’. He was evidently both successful and respected, holding office in the Goldsmiths’ Corporation and becoming Prime Warden in 1778.
