A pair of ormolu candlesticks lamps signed Jollet et Cie, Mon Colin A Paris.  French c.1900.

The Maison Colin was a prestigious art foundry based at 29 Rue Sévigné in Paris since 1843.  It took part in many World Fairs, including Chicago in 1893.  They were a great success at the 1900 World Fair and won a Grand Prize. The Maison worked with many famous artists like Carrier Belleuse, Marioton, Rozet.  They changed ownership several times and around 1906-1907 the Maison was controlled by Jollet & Cie without changing its name, remaining "Former Maison Colin" until 1911 when Jollet decided to use his own name only.
