FALIZE History!

Alexis Falize (1811-1898) was first introduced to jewellery during his employment by the firm of Mellerio from 1833-1835, where his skills in draftsmanship and watercolor quickly led to him becoming a jewellery designer. By 1838, he had established his own business, supplying designs exclusively to the firm of Janisset until the Revolution of 1848. These became sought by many Parisian retailers for their unique style, inspired by a vast range of artistic sources from all over the world.
In particular, the wealth of material arriving in France from Japan proved a huge influence on Falize. It is known that he owned over fifty paper-bound volumes of woodblock prints by Japanese artists, of a type that was circulating throughout Paris during the 1860s. It was by studying these volumes that Falize was inspired to design the unique enamels for which he has become so famous. Within these volumes were sketches of a wide range of subjects, including flora and fauna, as well as symbolic Japanese objects including gourds, fans, and theatrical masks.
Falize chose to incorporate these motifs into his jewellery designs. The talented artist Antoine Tard was tasked with translating Falize's designs into enamel, using the tradtional Japanese method of cloisonné enamelling. The motifs which Falize chose to depict in his enamels were closely derivative to the Japanese style. In addition to his amazing enamel work, Falize was known for his private commissioned work as well. This work included many religious pieces, like this one, that used the designs of historical pieces and crafted them into powerful art.
