Specialisation in the production of silver cutlery with over 200 different cutlery sets has made Jarosinski & Vaugoin with its eight employees a unique company throughout the world in this sector. Run both as a retailer and as a wholesaler, the company sells its silverware products at home and abroad. Two-thirds of the goods are manufactured in the workshop behind the salesroom. A workshop to make the heart of any expert experienced in the art of gold and silversmithing beat faster. Only rarely will you find such a perfect, authentic and aesthetic work area. For a moment the journalist and photographer are awestruck by the old, greasy workbenches made of pear wood, the whirring of the suspended drills, the smell of metal, tar and polishing paste, as well as the sight of shiny silver objects. While underplates are stacked up on one workbench, Japanese chopsticks made of silver and wenge, one of the world’s most exquisite woods, lie on another.
