Les entreprises de bijouterie à Paris de 1860 à 1914


  • Jacqueline Viruega


[eng] Abstract . Between 1860 and 1914 Parisian jewellery businesses having a company structure typically present the usual characteristics of small and medium-sized firms in the nineteenth century. One of these characteristics is the variety of situations ranging from micro-enterprises to large enterprises. Another one is the massive "infant mortality", which can also be noticed in other sectors and European countries. But these enterprises also present specific features as, among others, the large number of women managers and own name owners of the registered capital, which are more frequent than in other sectors. [fre] Résumé . Les bijouteries parisiennes qui ont revêtu une forme sociétaire entre 1860 et 1914 présentent des caractéristiques typiques des petites et moyennes entreprises du XIXe siècle. La diversité des situations, de la micro entreprise à la grosse PME, en est une. Une autre tient à une « mortalité infantile » massive, qu'on relève dans les autres secteurs et les autres pays européens. Cependant, ces entreprises montrent aussi des traits spécifiques à ce secteur d'activité, comme le nombre, plus important qu'ailleurs, de femmes gérantes et propriétaires en nom propre du capital social.
