Since it’ll be a while before I can return to Paris (which I was going to do this summer), I am contenting myself with a browse through the Société A. Durenne et du Val d’Osne’s wonderful catalog of lampposts for the city of lights. One of the nation’s largest suppliers, the foundry of Val d’Osne became highly regarded for the varied nature and quality of its iron castings in the second half of the 19th century. The company was originally founded by J.P.V. André in 1835 and developed rapidly, absorbing smaller foundries in the region east of Paris. They also specialized in fancy castings and architectural fittings, balconies, balustrades, fireplaces, amongst other castings. This catalog is from 1930. C’est magnifique.
