Haentges Frères were a celebrated firm of bronziers and cabinet-makers working in Paris in the last quarter of the nineteenth and the beginning of the twentieth centuries. Their syle was primarily influenced by Louis XV and Louis XVI designs although they later developed a more reductive Art Deco approach during the first few decades of the twentieth century. Denise Ledoux-Lebard lists Haentges Frères as being located at 9, Immeubles Industriels from 1883 and later at 6, rue Titon.
