This is a sensational and very rare piece by Jansen. With its rich gleam and sculptural weight, brass is experiencing a resurgence and with so many designers looking to the ’70s, it’s inevitable that lots of brass and bronze will be found in the glamorous home. Founded in 1880, Maison Jansen was one of the most influential design firms of the 20th Century and was a Paris-based interior design firm that provided fabulous interiors, furniture, lighting and accessories for over a Century. By the 1920s, Maison Jansen had offices around the world including, London, New York, Buenos Aires, Havana, Cairo, Prague, Rome, and Rio de Janeiro. The house’s most published work was a project by Stéphane Boudin and Paul Manno for the White House during the Kennedy administration. Maison Jansen clients include William III of the Netherlands, Alfonso XII of Spain, the Duke & Duchess of Windsor, the Rockefellers, Coco Chanel, Elsie de Wolfe and the Kennedys, among many others. If it’s a favorite of Chanel and Jackie Kennedy-It’s a favorite of mine.
