One of the oldest Parisian jewelry firms, “Bijoux Murat” began its history at 62 rue des Archives in Paris in 1847. Its founder was jewelry designer Charles Bertrand Murat (1 April 1818, Toulouse – 9 August 1897, Paris). A self-taught jeweler, Murat began studying jewelry making and improving his skills by working in jewelry workshops at the age of 16.
His eldest son Jacques Louis Georges Murat (1851 – 1918) successfully continued the family business and received many awards at jewelry exhibitions. As Jacques Louis Georges was childless, he passed on his business to his nephews.
According to the 1925 catalog, the company produced not only jewelry, chains, buttons, crosses, but also cigarette cases, manicure sets, fountain pens, pocket knives and award badges and medals.
