Literature

Shortly before 1806, Pierre Lambert Tahan, Belgian cabinet-maker, come to Paris. In 1825, him and his son, Jean Pierre Alexandre (1813-1892), were at the head of two factories, producing the same types of objects. In 1844, Pierre Lambert Tahan ceased his activities leaving the direction of his shop to his son who will completely revolutionize the company's organization by separating factory and store located at 32 Rue de la Paix. A year later, it was known as "Supplier of the King and Princes" and in 1855 he holded the title of "Supplier of the Emperor." The Court passed a large amount of commands for libraries and pedestal tables. Moreover, Pierre Alexandre Tahan participated at the World Fairs of his time. After the fall of the Second Empire, it was difficult to dissociate the Tahan House from the figure of the Emperor. In 1882, the company ceased its production and the store closed its doors.
