Young Joseph, Comte de Mazeray, is said to have left his homeland to emigrate to the USA at the beginning of 1850. fter having heard talk of gold deposits being located in California, he invested his savings in setting out on an expedition. After many years of hunting, searching and doubt, he finally struck gold and made his fortune. hen he returned to France, he was asked everywhere he went to tell the tale of his adventures, worthy of the most famous of explorers’ stories. When the Comte visited his parents and friends and attended parties, he never came empty handed. With a twinkling in his eye, he gave gifts which all contained gold. Some were traditional objects which had been made unique, whilst others were completely groundbreaking such as his Cognac which had been enriched with particles of gold. All were designed to enchant the upper class in search of new sensations.
A century later, Comte de Mazeray embodies this period where the creativity and magic of gold unite to make luxury even more beautiful.
