 Rimbert created a reputation and business providing unfinished steel articles to the craftsmen finishers of the Thiers area who would finish and polish the product for the retail market. The success of this venture and the high demand led to the company focusing on its own product line which is now marketed under the Jean Philip brand.

The classic Perles design by Jean Philip

 The patterns are very much in the traditional French classic style, all patterns are available in stainless steel (mat and brilliant, or even a combination of the two), silver plate and some have gold highlights to add that little bit of luxury and the ability to match gold dinnerware services.

 The company still makes the the Jean Philip line in the traditional manner and all the finished flatware is hand polished to create a superb finish. Interestingly all the manufacturing tools and patterns are preserved enabling the recreation of every pattern without a time limit.
