The firm was first established by Victor's father with premises at 93, Rue de Turenne where he was associated with the furniture and works of art restorer Meyer. Both Raulin pre and Meyer exhibited at the 1867 Exposition Universelle, presenting high quality lacquer furniture. Victor took over his father's business in 1878 and moved to new premises in 1882 at 110, rue de Vielle du Temple and later at 209, Boulevard St- Germain, where he remained until circa 1925. He specialized in marquetry, and like his father, in lacquer furniture in the 18th century taste. He exhibited at the 1878 and 1889 Paris Expositions Universelles where he was awarded both exhibitions silver medals. Victor Raulin, like his fellow cabinetmaker and marchand-mercier Jansen and Krieger, was an active client of Franois Linke.
