Jean-Joseph Barriere – French Goldsmith

Jean-Joseph Barriere became master in 1763, sponsored by Henri Delobel. He worked on the pont-Notre-Dame until 1786 when his shop and dwelling were pulled downduring the reconstruction of the bridge; then moving to the rue Coq Saint-Honore where he is recorded until the Terror in 1793. Barriere was one of the more productive Parisian goldsmiths. Barriere’s work is characterised by luxury, colour and a certain sense of drama.
