My visit to Chaumet museum Paris ,
My visit was full of inspiration ,emotions and happiness.
as soon as i entered the hall through the glass elevator that links the shop to the museum i felt like my breath will go away
The walls were telling millions and millions of stories ,an artistic history ,a place where art was born and created.
The first room is a salon ,it was also the place where Frederic Chopin stayed to play and compose .
his piano was so beautiful ,i kept thinking how lucky i am to see all this .
It made me wonder about all those ,artists ,sculptures ,architects ,and painters that worked ,imagined and conceptualized this amazing place.
It seems that it all started in 1780 where a small jeweler Marie -Etinne Nitot (one of the founder members of Chaumet Jewelry ) has saved the life of the emperor Napoleon,and since then the emperor trusted Mr. Nitot with the realization of the crown jeweleries .
But this is only a part of very long story ,its the history of Chaumet
I met also the director of the museum Mrs Beatrice De Plinval who passionately explained the treasury of this museum
In 2004 the public discovered this museum ,through the temporary exhibition ("Napoleon amoureux") that the Chaumet maison presented.
This is where a collection of 150 maquette of crowns and hair jewelry that was made in the history of Chaumet ,one of the sets that was made for the empress Josephine .along with an archive of 80 000 design.
the portraits of the empresses that the house of Chaumet created the crown jewelry
a visit to remember .
It took me through a journey of history ,dream ,art and luxury
