Antoine-Vital Cardeilhac founded in 1804 his company of goldsmiths and specializes in the cutlery and flatware. To the wire of the 19th century, the company is transmitted from father to son, with Armand Edward then Ernest, and continues to produce parts successfully strongly inspired for most models of wrought iron, to rich finely crafted ornaments. These works to the forms and styles are all considered notable by their chasing. The candy House is thus inevitably noticed in national and international exhibitions for the high quality of the pieces offered to the public and receives numerous awards, as the bronze medal won in 1823, silver in 1827 and 1834 as well as the famous Paris universal exhibition in 1867. Finally a gold medal comes devote to the Exposition Universelle of 1878, thus giving the candy House an unprecedented boom. After more than a century of success confirmed to the great universal exhibitions, the famous silver House Christofle eventually resume Cardeilhac in 1951.
