    In 1908, the House of CHARLES was created by Ernest Charles, who took over the ULLMANN Bronzier company.  
    The company only worked in bronze and initially specialised in the reproduction of antique lighting fixtures, an activity which enabled it to build up a reputation among bronze smiths.

    All the craftsmen who join the House of CHARLES come from the most prestigious art schools, such as the two sons of Ernest CHARLES who join the House in 1959. 

    Jean, who graduated from the École Boulle, and Jacques, who graduated from the Arts Appliqués. The arrival of the CHARLES sons brought a certain renewal to the creation of the House which then truly developed its characteristic style, between classicism and originality.
