    The House of Chaumet was originally founded in 1780 by Marie-Étienne Nitot and was soon named the jeweller of Queen Marie Antoinette and later Empress Josephine for their exceptional works. They were particularly famous for the maginificent tiaras they produced, as well as the coronation crown for Napoleon. When Joseph Chaumet took over the House in 1885, the House became known by its present name. Joseph Chaumet continued to create fabulous jewels for almost every court in Europe, India and Russia. He was succeeded by his son, Marcel Chaumet, in 1928. This pin, with mark 'JC' that stands for Joseph Chaumet, is possibly one of the pieces from the 20s when he was still leading the House.
