    If Nogent's cutlery "has a universal reputation that it rightly deserves because quality is combined with beauty" (Camille Pagé, Cutlery from origins to the present day, 1896-1900), it paradoxically knew the anonymity with regard to subcontracting work for large cutlery and goldsmith's houses in Paris and in the provinces.
