France, 19th century
Charming pair of blackened carved wood wall brackets, whose creation is attributed to the Maison des Bambous by Perret and Vibert. Inspired by Japan, the decor of storks and friezes of openwork geometric interlaces is quite characteristic of the taste of the time for extreme oriental motifs.
The Maison des Bambous by Perret and Vibert was founded in 1872 at number 33 rue du Quatre-Septembre. Specializing in small bamboo and wicker furniture and seating, they quickly turned to the manufacture of carved wood furniture of Japanese and Chinese inspiration. Around 1910, they opened a branch at 170, boulevard Haussmann where they will stay until 1994, year of the final closure of the Maison des Bambous.
