Henry Dasson (1825-1896) established at 106 Rue Vielle du-Temple, was one of the most celebrated Parisien bronzier-ebenistes. His work is renowned for the fine quality of the metalwork, utilising the designs of the ancien regime, and adapting the scale to conform to the needs of the times. He participated at the Expositions Universelles in 1878 and 1889 and examples of his work were purchased by the English Royal Family.
