The Keller firm was established in 1856 by Gustave Keller and his work was soon noted for its fine quality. The business was awarded a gold and a silver medal at the 1867 and 1878 Paris World Exhibitions. After 1878, the business was styled Gustave Keller Freres and started producing silverware, which was rewarded at the 1889 and 1900 World Fairs gold medal and a Grand Prix respectively in 1889. The business was the holder of several warrants as suppliers to European courts including Spain, Greece, Romania and Russia (the firm was a favorite of Tsar Nicholas II) and from the 1900's they were commissioned to produce several important cups and trophies for the Principality of Monaco. The famous 19th century French jeweller Lucien Falize, wrote that "everything that bears the Keller brand is good!" Examples of Keller's work can be found in notable collections throughout the world, including the Imperial State Hermitage in Saint Petersburg, and those of the Musée des Arts Décoratifs and the Musée d'Orsay in Paris.
