Claude Dozorme Tabletop Styles
Located in the Puy-de-Dôme, facing the Puys mountain chain in the heart of the Livradois-Forez Regional Nature Park, Thiers is a fascinating town that holds visitors in its thrall. A medieval town brimming with character stretching from its rocky spur to the fertile Limagne plain, Thiers proudly displays its cutlery manufacture, the history of which goes back six hundred years. Whether in a street name (rue de la Coutellerie, rue des Forgerons, rue des Usines, rue de l’Industrie, etc.), a trade sign hung outside or painted onto a boutique, the remains of the first industrial forges nestling in the valley or a paddle wheel on the Durolle river, it is impossible to wander around the town’s streets and alleys and not notice the myriad traces left by the cutlery industry.
