Cast Iron pieces became very popular in France towards the mid 19th century. The best of these companies was the firm Val D'Osne, opened in 1836 by Jean-Pierre Victor Andre. The company particpated in many exhibitions, and was awarded a number of medals, including a grand medal at one of the exhibitions. The company was known for its quality of work and the value of these antiques continue to rise.

A frequent participant at the international exhibitions during the second half of the 19th Century, the prolific firm of Val d'Osne, established by J.P.V. André in 1835, was known for their extensive inventory of architectural designs and 'fancy castings'. Reputed scuptors like Carrier-Belleuse, Mathurin Moreau, Pradier and Delaplanche created numerous models exclusively for Victor André. The firm met critical acclaim at the 1857 London Exhibition with a monumental bronze fountain cast with swans and Classical figures. Acquired by Barbezat & Cie in 1867, and allying with the fondeur J.J. Ducel towards 1870, the company was eventually renamed Société Anonyme des Hauts-Fourneaux & Fonderies du Val-D'Osne, Anciennes maison J.P.V. André et J.J. Ducel et Fils. The most celebrated work or art cast by the firm would be irrefutably the Parisian subway entrances designed by Hector Guimard.
