Part of the silversmith aristocracy, Odiot was supplier to the Europe's leading courts, and its most outstanding achievements sometimes top the €200,000 mark.

Odiot's most iconic item was the cradle of the King of Rome... More generally, its market features items with prices ranging from a few hundred euros to €20,000-odd for large services or worked decorative pieces. The styles are extremely varied, with several generations of silversmiths faithfully following every change in fashion from the company's creation in 1690. The Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris has 33 silverwork models and 176 original designs from Odiot's workshop.
