The lamps were made in Paris between 1970 and 1975 by Maison Jansen, a company emblematic of luxury style at an international level. In 1880, at the height of the Belle Époque, Jean-Henri Jansen emigrated from Holland to open a furniture store on Rue Royale in Paris. Maison Jansen was a success from the start. The shopkeeper was immediately impressed with his lavish, detailed windows and unique approach to selling furniture that within ten years Maison Jansen was no longer a store but a rapidly expanding design company with a wealthy and loyal clientele, clients he would retain for nearly a century. It was one of the most famous and influential interior decorating houses of the 20th century, frequented by royal families, high society, national leaders, and other luminaries of elite society. It was one of the first truly global design firms, one of the most influential voices of the twentieth century, excellence that helped establish the Jansen style as an undisputed player in design history. The genius of the company lay in its extraordinary ability to recover from the past shapes, colors, and materials of great scenic impact. The most sought-after pieces reflected the influence of past design, from Louis XIV to Louis XVI styles, from the Directoire era to imperial suggestions. In 1929, upon Jansen's death, the company continued to expand its world presence under the leadership of Stéfan Boudin, Jansen's loyal collaborator; Stéphane Boudin was succeeded, after his death in 1967, by longtime collaborator and colleague Pierre Delbée whose Paris residence was world-famous as the pinnacle of Jansen's lush aesthetic; he continued to represent the company in its finest designs until 1979 when the company changed hands. The business did not last long after his departure and Maison Jansen closed its doors in 1989, over a century after its founding. Throughout its activity, Maison Jansen had prestigious clients and commissions: William III of Holland, Alfonso XII of Spain, the Duke and Duchess of Windsor, the Rockefellers, Elsie de Wolfe, Nancy Astor's granddaughter, Nancy Lancaster, American millionaire Henry Channon, the Kennedys, and Coco Chanel, the restoration of the White House, including the famous Red Room, during John Kennedy's administration, the furnishing of Lady Olive Baillie's Leeds Castle in Kent, England, the interior design of the motor yacht Chambel IV, now renamed Northwind II.
