"" "Maquet is a French luxury stationery and leather goods house founded in 1841 by the brothers Hector and Charles Maquet. One of the most renowned in the Place de Paris, Maison Maquet becomes a patented supplier to the Empress Eugenie and to several European courts and has won numerous prizes and medals at world exhibitions throughout its history.
Maison Maquet soon became one of the most fashionable retail stationeries and enjoyed great renown during the Second Empire. She even obtained the coveted title of "patented supplier to Her Majesty the Empress", a diploma which recognizes the talent and know-how of the House. "The Empress Eugenie regularly visited the shop in the rue de la Paix, where she was served by Madame Maquet"
Maquet is in vogue with foreign courts, as she likes to point out in her advertisements, and builds up a clientele as prestigious as they are loyal. This is how she supplies the court of Russia and, in particular, the Grand Duchess and Grand Duke Constantine of Russia. Le Figaro reported in 1875 that “the papers are illustrated with the arms of the Grand Duke, enamelled in gold and color; nothing richer and better in taste ”. Prince Axel of Denmark is a loyal customer of Maquet.
Attracting the aristocratic elites, Maison Maquet counts among its clients Princess Pauline von Metternich, the Rohan-Chabot families and Costa de Beauregard.
Subsequently, with the advent of the Third Republic, Maison Maquet supplies republican institutions, including the Elysée Palace, the Paris City Hall and French embassies, as well as financial institutions such as the Bank of France.
Another prestigious client of Maquet, the Paris Opera has some of its programs printed there.
