Upon his father's retirement in 1895, he took over the direction. In 1902 he moved to 6, rue Royale. During the period of 1899-1901, he worked in close collaboration with the artist Alphonse Mucha. With Mucha acting as a designer, they executed many important commissions, for Sarah Bernhardt amongst others. They mainly created objects in the Art Nouveau and Art Deco styles favouring enamelling and coloured stones.
