Jean-François VEYRAT began his career in 1815 by manufacturing objects in silver plating. In 1830 he began to manufacture solid silver pieces.
He will receive numerous awards and decoration, including a silver medal at the Exposition des Produits de l’Industrie Française in 1834, as well as another in 1839 . His pieces are classic but noted for the elegance of their design and their beautiful quality of execution  : complete table services but also important pieces, boxes, tobacco jars, coffee services in vermeil and enamel, and even groups, including for example the Abduction of Ganymede whose drawing has come down to us.
His son, Augustin Pierre Adolphe VEYRAT, born in Paris in 1809. He was listed in 1833 at 5 rue de la Vieille Draperie as "guillocheur and box assembler" . Associated with Jean-Valentin MOREL (1794-1860), a famous goldsmith and jeweler, he presented jewels in fine stones and mosaics at the Exposition des Produits de l’Industrie Française in 1834. We find traces of their production with a gold snuffbox with the arms of the Prince of Wales, future George IV, restored by VEYRAT and MOREL in the 1833's (Jewels of the Duchess of Windsor, SOTHEBY'S Geneva, April 3, 1987, lot 201) . He will soon join his father's workshop to take over.
Judge at the commercial court, the one who will be designated at the end of his life as "VEYRAT father", will also be a member of the Comité de l’Union Centrale des Beaux-Arts Appliqués, vice-president of the Chambre syndicale de la Bijouterie et de l’Orfèvrerie, and Officier de l'Académie in 1874.
It is, in 1867's, at the head of one of the most important establishments of Paris, by the arrangement and the number of workers.
In 1840, VEYRAT became VEYRAT & Fils, at 20, rue de Malte, then VEYRAT Fils on October 31, 1849.
