Henry Dasson was a celebrated cabinet maker 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 updating them with an up to date twist. He received awards at every exhibition he exhibited in, thanks to his very high quality bronze finishes and gilding.
Dasson's choice of design for this pair of tables was taken by the celebrated Adam Weisweiler's 'gueridon doubles colonnettes', its typical characteristics comprising the bamboo shaped legs and the marble inset top. Some variations were made where the top would be inset with Wedgwood porcelain, lacquer or lapis lazuli. Examples of these tables are known to have been supplied to Madame du Barry and the Comte Skavronsky.
