    1. Dear Debbie,
      We are working on a Russian Hill neighborhood history and art project and would be delighted to hear about Jules Suppo from one of his family members. His artistic imprint on the neighborhood is still so present. Please contact us at 415 519 2723 and we can tell you more about the project.
      Looking forward to hearing from you,
      Lynn and Christoph

  3. I am appraising some furniture that Jules made in 1921. This is a thrill to see his beautiful carvings and office still intact! I will make a point to admire it when I'm in the City!

  4. My grandparents and my mom were friends of the Suppo Family. I vaguely remember meeting them as a child. I know we had dinner with them several times at their home. They have all passed on, but my dad still has a few of his carvings that he gave to the family.
    I had no idea his shop was still there. I will have to go and see it. What a great man.
