Victor Boudet is a silversmith who stamped his hallmark in 1894. His workshop located at 43 Boulevard des Capucines was still active in 1902 before he moved. These magnificent salerons do not seem to have a goldsmith's mark. It is therefore likely that Boudet chiselled this piece with great virtuosity, but it is impossible to ensure that he was the craftsman.
