The Val d'Osne company was an art foundry created in 1835 by Jean Pierre Victor André, inventor of ornamental cast iron. The name of the foundry is due to the localisation of its workshops in Val d'Osne, in Haute Marne region. The foundry was renowned for its monumental garden antiques (fountains and statues) inspired by antique or classic models.
