Description Thesmar began his career designing textiles but was later employed as an enameler. Beginning in about 1890, Thesmar began to work in "plique-à-jour," or openwork, enamel. By 1912, the year of his death, Thesmar was acclaimed as France's finest enameler. Because of their extreme fragility, few of his works survive.
