Eugène Feuillâtre was born in Dunkirk, Northern France in 1870. Feuillâtre worked as an apprentice goldsmith before going on to study enamel with Etienne Tourette and Louis Houillon. From 1890 to 1897 he was head of René Lalique’s enamel workshop and mastered plique à jour. In 1898 he set up his own business with a workshop at 3, rue de Villedo close to the Palais Royal in Paris’ 1st arrondissement. He created pieces for many different firms including Tiffany and Company. Louis Comfort Tiffany, during the 1900 Paris Exposition Universelle acquired several pieces of Feuillâtre’s work which started their working relationship. The pieces show the Tiffany name and Feuillâtre’s mark and several examples are now held in Tiffany's collection. Feuillâtre exhibited at a number of different Paris Salons as well as in Brussels, London, and New York. Feuillâtre was enlisted in 1914 and died during the War in 1916.
