ABOUT







Girard et Cie [Robert Girard]

Robert Girard (b. 1883) was a school friend of Charles Tuleu, who had inherited Fonderie Laurent&Deberny in 1881. Tuleu teamed up with Girard in 1914 and they cooperated until 1921, when Tuleu retired and the business passed to Girard under the new name Girard Et Cie. Talks were started with Peignot about a merger. Deberny&Peignot was incorporated on July 1, 1923.

Girard designed Astrée (Fonderie Deberny&Peignot, 1921-1923), a recut of a baroque face. Stephenson&Blake's version is called Mazarin (1926). Klingspor link.
