In 1875, the engraver Maarten Mauquoy opened an engraving wokshop in Belgium. His artistry was passed down, indeed enhanced, from generation to generation. Mauquoy’s excellent reputation spread and was soon attracting the attention of the royal house in Europe. The seal “Handmade in Belgium” bears witness to the high-quality of Mauquoy.
