Important pair of gilded bronze wall lights, two arms of lights, rich carved decoration with quiver. Signed" Henri Dasson et Cie", dated 1891.

Henry Dasson was one of the most famous cabinetmakers and bronzers of the second half of the 19th century. A bronze expert by training, he succeeded cabinetmaker Charles Winckelsen in 1871 and moved to 106 rue Vieille du Temple in Paris. He specializes in replicas of 18th century royal furniture. The high quality of execution of its production seduces the Parisian bourgeoisie but also an international clientele. Present in most major exhibitions, he is always praised by critics. The quality of his cabinetwork and bronzes is rewarded at the Universal Expositions. He became a knight of the Legion of Honour in 1883 and an officer in 1889. He ceased his activity in 1894, the same year a huge auction will take place in his workshop. The Bronze cabinetmaker died in 1896 and was buried at Père Lachaise where a bust of Dallier overlooks his grave.
