Monnette, customizing antique tableware

Collecting extraordinaire

Axelle is a specialist of vintage seeking. When she was little, she used to go to French brocantes and flea markets with her grandmother, Monnette. Her grandmother transmitted her passion in hunting and finding beautiful objects that have a past.

She decided to transform her passion into a new story. What else than her grandmother name for her brand? Monnette was born.


A second life for antiques tableware

Axelle now gives a second life to antiques tableware she finds. She thoughtfully collects antique silver spoons, tumblers, napkin rings… in Northern France flea markets. Then begins the transformation: cleaning, resilvering and engraving. Every step is done manually with a great care, a true elixir of youth for these little old objects. While preparing them for their new life, she imagines their past stories and homes.


Personalizing antiques: a unique gift

Axelle wants the objects to transmit a message: she engraves on demand sweet messages, so the second life of these objects remains eternally.

A personalized antique tableware is a unique gift. It’s a way to keep a souvenir or to transmit a special message to your loved ones. The silver-plated spoons will add a joyful touch to breakfasts and coffee-breaks. On the occasion of Mother’s Day, they will be the perfect refined gift for francophiles Mums!  

We have selected two French words to customize these antique spoons: Amour and Belle. Which one will you choose?
