Gagneau of Paris began in the early 19th century as a premium metal workshop, and by the time of the invention of electricity in the late 19th century was one of the best in France. He won numerous medals in the Great Exhibition of 1851, Paris Universal Exhibition of 1855, and was part of the jury for the 1889 Paris Exhibition. Embracing the ‘hi-tech’ buzz of electric lights (ie Paris lit the world’s first street lights in 1878) the company produced superb quality hi-tech light fittings and table lamps throughout the early 20th century, making them some of the earliest electrical commercial products available… still very functional 100 years later, and beautiful as well!
