La Maison Denière, created in 1804 by Jean-François Denière (1774-1866), then taken over in 1844 by the son, Guillaume Denière (1815 - 1903), is a specialist in furnishing bronzes, such as, candelabra, lamps, torches , clocks and centerpieces. Building on its success, Maison Denière also partners with talented contemporary artists to edit their works.
Bronzier of the reigning houses, Denière supplies the bronzes for the Coronation's Coach, makes several deliveries for the Crown furniture under the July Monarchy, and numerous bronzes for the Tuileries Palace under the Second Empire. Rewarded at the World's Fair of 1855 with a medal of honor, Denière is still awarded at the World's Fair of 1862. His contributions to the Universal Exhibitions were always awaited and noticed on par with those of the Maison Barbedienne.
