Catalogue Note

Henry Dasson (1825-1896) was one of the leading ébénistes and bronziers in 19th century Paris.  He was based at 106 Rue Vieille-du-Temple in the Marais, and in 1871 he purchased the thriving firm of Winckelsen.
Dorothy Spreckels Munn (1913-200) was the daughter of the San Francisco sugar baron Adolph Spreckels (d.1924) and his wife Alma de Bretteville, who were notable philanthropists and donated the Legion of Honor Palace to the city in 1924, now part of the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco.  Like her mother Dorothy was a frequent visitor to Paris and actively supported her native city's cultural institutions, and she was the last member of the family to reside in the Spreckels' Pacific Heights mansion in Washington Street.  With her husband Charles Munn (d.1981), she also had a property in Palm Beach, to where she removed permanently in 1985.
