It was around 1890 that the famous Val d'Osne art foundry
launched production of this staircase. Le Val d'Osne was a world-famous art foundry, founded in 1836 to manufacture
street objects, furniture and decorative cast iron. The company quickly became the largest
in France, with its headquarters and gallery in Paris. Val d'Osne has regularly won awards
at several exhibitions. At the "Exposition des produits de l'industrie française", they were awarded the silver medal in
1839, then the gold medal in 1844 and 1845.
Over the years, the foundry has worked with many important artists, and has become famous for its monumental fountains, animal groups, staircases, statues and large cast-iron groups based on antique or classical models.

The Dijon model (156cm) beautifully reflects a spiral staircase in all its simplicity and purity.
To secure the space between the balusters, the staircase can be fitted with wrought-iron panels, giving it a more sophisticated look.
The staircase is also available as a straight staircase and can also be
combined with straight treads to create a quarter-turn, half-turn or double-turn staircase.
Following the success of the Dijon model, Villa d'Or has developed the model Grand Dijon with a diameter of 200cm.
