L'étude du fonds d'archives de la Cuivrerie de Cerdon : 6 mois au service Patrimoine du département de l'Ain

Abstract : "La Cuivrerie de Cerdon" is an industrial complex located in the center of the department of Ain in activity from 1852 to 2010, manufacturer all kinds of metal objects, including a large copper part, for silk factories, restaurants, hotels but also special orders for wealthy individuals and souvenir shops. Finely crafted and engraved products were shipped throughout Europe, Russia, North Africa, but also to Japan or Brazil. The Cuivrerie de Cerdon, despite a continuous working presence, is in an advanced state of disrepair. It is for a rescue of the places and a project of reopening like Center of Cultural Interpretation that the Department of the Ain will acquire in 2018 all the buildings as well as their contents, as much the objects as the archives. It is in this context that the trainee student was recruited for six months for a study of the archives of the company, put in boxes and kept by the Departmental Archives of Ain. The company's fund represents more than 20 linear meters of archives being classified during the internship. This study allowed the emergence of a more precise chronology of the history of the company, its productions and orders. The study of sales flows, lists of customers and their location, allowed to better understand the links between the company, its business environment, as well as national and global economic and political events. This information will feed the future journey of visitors to the cultural establishment. The trainee and his work are therefore in permanent link with the teams of scenography, museography, architecture, the DRAC and the heritage of the department. The complete dissertation includes the university report (pages 1 to 126), the report for the department (pages 127 to 271) and the appendices to the report (pages 272 to 309).
