Born in 1825, Henry Dasson was one of the finest makers of gilt-bronze mounted furniture in the 19th century. With a workshop established at 106 rue Vieille-du-Temple, Paris, he specialized predominantly in the production of Louis XIV, Louis XV and Louis XVI style furniture using the very finest ormolu mounts with the highest quality mercury gilding. In 1871, he purchased the flourishing business and remaining stock of Charles-Guillaume Winckelsen, who had established a reputation for furniture of the highest quality. Dasson almost certainly inherited the craft of 'ciseleur' from Winckelsen.
Dasson exhibited a number of pieces at the 1878 and 1889 Paris Exhibition of Louis XV and XVI styles as well as pieces of his own modified eighteenth century design.
The exhibits in 1878 included a table entirely in gilt-bronze, purchased by Lord Dudley.
His copy of the celebrated 'Bureau du Roi', sold at the same exhibition to Lady Ashburton, was cited as 'n'egale-t-elle pas l'original pour la delicatesse et le fini du travail'.
