The Susse brothers company was founded in Paris in 1758 , originally a stationery trade , and won acclaim in the art foundry . It is today the oldest art foundry in France still operating under the name Susse Fondeur
After their participation in the major exhibitions of the period, notably those of London in 1871 and Vienna in 1873, the Susse brothers published in 1875 a general catalog containing the list of all the works then reproduced by the company, the number of bronzes for sale irrefutably attesting to its vitality and prosperity.
