Lot Essay

Jean-Henri Jansen (1854-1928) founded the famous interior-decorating firm of Maison Jansen in 1880. Manufacturing revival and nouveau furniture he became Fournisseur de la Cour d'Espagne and was awarded a Silver Medal at both the 1883 Amsterdam Exhibition and the Paris 1889 Exposition Universelle.

The firm relocated to 9, rue Royale, Paris, in 1885 around which time it incorporated the established firm of Joseph-Emmanuel Zwiener, renaming it Zwiener Jansen Successeur and adopting the practice of stamping pieces, as can be seen in this lot, ZJ.
