Jean-Charles Cahier

( 1772 - 1857 )

Cahier was born in Soissons, goldsmith merchant and jeweller, living in Paris, rue de Turenne (1802) then 58, Quai des Orfèvres, under the sign of A l'Ancre. He was appointed goldsmith to the King in 1816 and took over from Martin-Guillaume Biennais (1764-1843), who he was apprenticed to, when the latter retired from business in 1821. Cahier first rented the Biennais shop and workshop located at n ° 283 rue Saint-Honoré (1821), then bought his business (1823), but kept his own home at 58 Quai des Orfèvres.
