Lot Essay


The firm known from 1867 as Mercier Frères was established in 1828 by Claude Mercier with premises at 15, rue Beautrellis. Moving shortly afterwards to 100, rue du Faubourg Saint-Antoine, where it remained until its final demise in 1986, the firm exhibited at the Exposition des produits de l'industrie française in 1844 and 1849, and participated in most of the major International Exhibitions of the latter half of the century.
