- Jean Delane, from Bayonne, worked in Toulouse with the goldsmith Louis Masse from 1693 to 1697. On his return to Bayonne in 1697, he opened a workshop until 1754. He was one of the the most talented goldsmiths in Bayonne, some of the pieces listed were of high quality, showing talent which does not envy the finest Parisian creations: in the Jourdan-Barry collection, an ewer with its basin decorated (See Jourdan-Barry Sale, Sotheby's of April 18, 2012, Paris, n ° 175 ) and a pair of scissors with its tray ([2] n ° 151 & 158), a powder sugar bowl and a coffee maker (Ex. Galerie Verrier collection) and a dish from the Pierre Bergé collection are listed. As for the candlesticks, an identical pair of our silversmith was sold at Sotheby's on April 18, 2012 in Paris.
