It counted in 1840 nearly a hundred workers. He made fancy furniture, wedding baskets, liquor cabinets, kits and travel kits. In 1830 he published the bulletin of the novelty store, containing the nomenclature of all the small objects he made. The VERVELLE house was then firmly established, it knew how to manufacture high quality objects at reasonable prices.
