In 1878, the bronze maker Antonin Petitot opened a workshop in Paris. In 1917, his son Henri took over the company. They soon sold their products not only in Paris but also in whole France, Europe and the United States. Petitot produced high quality bronze fixtures with shades from the finest French glass workshops, including Frères Muller. Along with Hettier & Vincent, Petitot became the largest Art Deco lamp manufacturer in the 1930s. (kre)
