Henry Dasson was a celebrated cabinet maker, bronzier and ebeniste, from the 19th Century. His workshop in Paris was at 106 Rue Vielle du Temple. He concentrated mainly on imitating furniture masterpieces from the Louis XVI period and giving them an up to date twist. He received awards at every exhibition he exhibited in thanks to his very high quality bronze finishes and gilding, such as the Expositions Universelles in 1878 and 1889.
