Denière et Matelin
The partnership between Denière and Matelin was created in the final years of the 18th century by bronziers François-Thomas Matelin and Jean-François Denière. Very successful, within just a few years the partners counted among the most important European suppliers of bronzes for furnishings, including the royal Garde-meuble of Milan. Denière and Matelin furnished bronzes and clocks for many important private clients, often via their fellow bronziers. The partnership came to an end in April 1820, with the two men continuing their careers separately.
