Charles Valton was a student of Henri Louis Levasseur, Antoine Louis Barye and Emmanuel Frémiet. From the age of fifteen, he spent his time working in the menagerie at the Paris Museum of Natural History, making his debut at the Salon of 1868. He was awarded a third class medal in 1875, a second class medal in 1885, and a gold medal at both the 1889 and 1900 Paris World’s Fairs. In 1883 he became professor of drawing and sculpture at the Paris Germain Pilon municipal school. He was awarded the French Legion of Honour (chevalier de la Légion d’Honneur) in 1906 and continued to exhibit at the Salons on a regular basis until 1914. Commissioned by the city of Paris, the bronze sculptures Lion rugissant (Roaring Lion), Lion marchant (Walking Lion) and Lionne blessée (Injured Lioness), are among his most well-known works.



Handsome sideboard bought in mid December, and delivered to Germany 10 days later (despite chaos at Dover). The sellers made this a neat straightforward transaction, and wrapped it, for the journey, with TLC.

I recently brought an Art Deco dressing table from the furniture rooms. The piece was exactly as described and Im very pleased with it. They were extremely easy to deal with, prompt with their replies, and the delivery arrived exactly when arranged. Very good service all round

We bought two club chairs from Toby and Katie. The chairs are great and good value, and they were very reliable and organised sellers. However the best thing was that - without being asked - they offered for us to check the condition of the chairs when they were delivered and to take them back if we were not happy. This was incredibly fair. In the end the chairs were exactly as described.
