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.
