Amaury, a Lineage of Founders

Photography : Guillaume COLLANGES    

The Amaury foundry has been casting bronze for 90 years – the grandfather, then the father, the uncles, and finally the sons, Jean-Claude and Jean-Pierre. Before, the clientele was made up mostly of antique dealers from the Faubourg Saint-Antoine. "When we were kids, we’d make deliveries on Fridays with a pushcart, and the customers paid us directly in cash – we had to be careful or they’d try to short-change us."
