Very little is known about the French jeweller Lucien Gautrait.  He is said to have worked for the house of Vever, as well as for Leon Gariod, in the late nineteenth century in Paris.  His work is noted for extremely fine chasing and enamelwork.  Despite the lack of records with regards to this designer, quite a few of his jewels remain, and are characterized by finely wrought gold decorated with plique-a-jour enamelling, and are most often in the form of pendants.  Vever, the famed French jeweller and historian and Gautrait’s contemporary, described him as, ‘an excellent jeweller with a delicate style, who perfectly executes rare and charming works in which the engraving and enamel play an important role.’
