The low table has a bottom shelf with a brown leather top, and a upper shelf with its original glass top. The Jansen table is in excellent condition with a rich steel and brass patina. ( few scratches on the glass top). The small table is not signed but attributed to Maison Jansen.
Maison Jansen was a Paris-based interior decoration office founded in 1880 by Dutch-born Jean-Henri Jansen. Jansen is considered the first truly global design firm, serving clients in Europe, Latin America, North America and the Middle East. Not originally equipped with its own workrooms for producing furniture, the firm began by relying upon antiques and the furniture contracted to outside cabinetmakers. By the early 1890s Maison Jansen had established its own manufacturing capacity producing furniture of contemporary design, as well as reproductions, primarily in the Louis XIV, Louis XVI, Directoire, and Empire styles.
