The Val d’Osne Foundry is an art foundry created in 1835 by Jean Pierre Victor André, inventor of cast iron ornament. During the 19th century, the company grew and became the most important French society in art cast iron. It won several medals at exhibitions of products from French industry and at World Fairs as in Paris in 1878. Collaborations with the greatest artists of the century such as Carrier-Belleuse, Mathurin Moreau, Pradier and Eugène Piat contributed to the reputation of the company.
