This pair of cast iron jardinieres bears a signature E. Paris et Cie 47 Rue de Paradis. They were made in c 1880 by the renowned firm of Charles Emile Paris specializing in the manufacture of crystal glass, enamelling and mosaics. The crystal making and enameling firm was founded in 1827 or 1829 at rue de Bercy by his father, Jean-Alexandre Paris, who was the jeweller goldsmith of the Palais Royal. In 1867 Charles Emile Paris left the Parisian site due to the new law prohibiting the emission of industrial smoke in the capital, and founded a new factory at Le Bourget (Seine) at the site of a Louis XV hunting lodge. The new plant was destroyed during the war of 1870 and ruined Charles-Emile Paris; he had to sell the land in order to rebuild the factory on the leased site. The business was successful growing steadily in the number of employees, and a retail store is opened at rue de Paradis in the 10th arrondissement of Paris in 1876
