Footnote
Paul Lévy, founded his store in Paris at 16 Boulevard de Magenta in February 1919. WWI had just ended, so this was a bold move, but one that paid off, with Lévy soon creating work for large firms such as Van Cleef, but also selling under his own name, as well as under his wife's last name, Sasportas. He produced mostly work in the Art Deco style, but also in historical styles in response to customers demands.

Paul Lévy died on September 2, 1940.
