The Ercuis factory stands just opposite the Ercuis village church; and this is no coincidence, as it was the parish priest, Abbé Pillon, who founded the decorative silverware company in 1867. Gradually moving away from religious art production, Ercuis rapidly started building a reputation for fine tableware.
In all, some 45 steps are involved in producing flatware in solid silver or nickel silver, an alloy made from copper, zinc and nickel. Stamping, annealing, deburring, emery filing, buffing, silvering, brightening: at every stage, a specialised operator keeps the flatware moving down the line until it is finally given its prestigious hallmark, proof of its 63-micron silver pedigree, almost twice the standard silver content required. The silver platework is produced with the same concern for quality and excellence. Each piece is handed from one workshop to the next, where it is expertly sculpted by the very best silversmiths.
Ercuis successfully blends both tradition and modernity to ensure that the brand will remain one of France’s best-known and greatest silversmiths well into the 21st century.
CARE & DISCLOSURE Dishwasher safe and recommended for everyday use, whether silverplate, sterling, or stainless. Use any household silver polish to clean the silver when tarnished.
