Book Maison Empereur


The 258-page hardcover book traces the history of the Maison Empereur, the family that runs it, the factories that supply us and the tens of thousands of objects we count.

A veritable institution for the people of Marseilles, the establishment is the home of the historic factories whose know-how it promotes.

This book is a story of transmission that we invite you to discover!


Craftsmen and merchants for three centuries and seven generations, the Empereur family is the custodian of France's oldest general hardware and drugstore.

As we approach the House's tercentenary in the world of hardware, the creation of this book celebrates the longevity of the Maison Empereur as a modest way of thanking our customers.

Rediscover the whole world of the Maison with unpublished archives and documents drawn from our drawers, trunks and manuscripts, which tell the story of the Maison, enamelled with a thousand anecdotes and object stories!

A beautiful book in the image of our House to pass on traditions, stories and know-how to be preserved for future generations.
