Footnotes

  • Henry Dasson (1825-1896) was one of the most celebrated Parisian bronzier ébénistes. His business was located at 106, rue Vieille-du-Temple, Paris. His work is renowned for the fine quality of the metalwork, ormolu and guilding. Specializing in the reproduction of the period styles of Louis XIV, XV and XVI furniture, Dasson often used to copy items whilst adding his own style. Successes at the Paris Expositions Universelles in 1878 onwards brought his work into demand on the Continent and in England where he established an elite clientele including the Royal family.
