L'ESCALIER DE CRISTAL
162 & 164 PALAIS ROYAL
Marie Jeanne Rosalie Désarnaud (1775 -1842) opened her store around 1808 in the galleries of the Palais-Royal garden. The trade quickly acquired prestige and fame.
In 1812, they specialized their production by combining cut crystal and gilded bronze in the manufacture of art objects and furniture. It was that same year that a surprising staircase with crystal balusters was installed which would become the emblem of the store.
The widow Désarnaud participated in the 1819 exhibition at the Louvre where she was awarded a gold medal for the crystals decorated with bronze. In 1829, Marie Désarnaud sold her business to Jacques Boin, a tailor-engraver also working at the Palais-Royal. Boin joined forces in 1840 with another merchant, Pierre-Isidore Lahoche. In 1844, they participated in the Exhibition of Industrial Products.
In 1852, Pierre Isidore Lahoche decided to join forces with Emile Pannier, Eager to conquer an increasingly large international clientele, Lahoche and Pannier did not hesitate to cross the Atlantic to present their articles in New York where they were rewarded with a silver medal in 1853. They were also rewarded with another silver medal at the Paris Universal Exhibition in 1855 and a commission from Napoleon III. The latter buys them a cut ruby crystal cup with a gilded bronze horn.
The Universal Exhibition of 1867 in Paris Émile Pannier once again won a bronze medal and was the subject of all praise.
After almost 70 years of existence and the succession of four different owners, the Escalier de Cristal store has moved to the new Baron Haussmann district, opposite the grand opera still under construction, at 6 rue Scribe and 1 rue Auber in 1872.
In 1923, the L'Escalier de Cristal store closed, this closure was linked to the events that disrupted the beginning of the 20th century (war) and the sudden death of the main heir.
