Founded in 1740 by M.Lavollée, it was taken over by Francis and Joseph Fontaine in 1842, which changed the company's name to Maison Fontaine.
In 1866, it employed over 300 workers, distributed in three sites: Paris, Picardy and the Ardennes.
Branch and shop

Maison Fontaine is regularly awarded at major exhibitions (Bronze Medal at the World Exhibition in Paris in 1867 - The Gold Medal in 1878 - The Grand Prize at St. Louis in 1904).
Art Nouveau and Art Deco styles
In addition of reproductions of historical hardware, Maison Fontaine was in the first to collaborate with prominent artists such as Rene Prou, Jacques-Emile Ruhlmann, Jean Puiforcat, Antoine Bourdelle and Aristide Maillol to create exclusive models in Art Nouveau and Art Deco styles.
Thus, Maison Fontaine decorated residences and palaces for more than three centuries, as well as the Opera of Paris, the Palais de Versailles, the Chateau de Chenonceau, the Ritz Hotel, the Hotel de Crillon etc.
