Alfred-Louis-Achille Daguet life is relatively unknown however we do know he was a pupil of Jean Leon Gerome and lived in Paris until 1910. His workshop was was located above Samuel Bing’s boutique. He exhibited at the Société des Artistes Français in 1903 and 1904. During this time is when he work peaked yet he continued to work also participating in the 1926 exhibition “Le Cuivre et le Bronze moderne” at the Galliera Museum. There Daguet showed works with new forms like circular disks of steel and bronze. His work before 1910 is what he is best known for, repoussé copper panels applied to hinged boxes, mantel clocks, and other objects. He rendered images of flowers, birds, and the sea sometimes mixed with cabochons.
