These table lamps are often attributed to the famous Maison Jansen or Maison Charles companies from Paris, France. Made in the highest quality, by hand and all unique. None of these lamps are exactly the same. Maison Jansen ended business in the 1980s. Maison Charles still exists and they produce superb lighting, many old “classic” models and beautiful new ones.
