Paul-Emile Brandt was born in La Chaux-de-Fonds Switzerland in 1883. At a young age, he moved to Paris where he studied with Chaplain and Allard. In the first decade of the twentieth century, he went into his own business, creating jewellery in the Art Nouveau style which he exhibited in the annual expositions of La Societe des Artistes Francais from 1906 to 1911. After WorldWar I, he turned to creating jewellery in the Art Deco style, characterised by a monochromatic palette with white gold and diamonds offset with onyx or black enamel. For his cigarette cases, decorated in lacquer, he adopted the circle as the dominant motif. After World War II, he ceased making jewellery to establish a tinware manufactory enterprise. He died in Paris in 1952.
