Bronzes with "crowned C"
The “crowned C” punch is a punch of a few millimeters. It has long intrigued specialists who believed that it was the signature of a bronzier or a cabinetmaker.
It was Henry Nocq who identified this mark as a check mark. Indeed, the "Crowned C" was a hallmark used in Paris between 1745 and 1749. Each craftsman then had to go to the brand's office to have his bronze works hallmarked and pay a tax (Bibliography: Pierre Berlet, Les Bronzes dorés 18th century French, ed Picard, 1987)
