Designer before being a bronze-caster, Henry Delisle creates in 1895 the Maison Delisle, who provides all the courts in Europe and the most famous residences, especially the Russian court from 1905 to 1917 with orders for the palace of Tsarskoie Selo. Named Horloger du Roy de Belgique in 1918 after providing the court of Serbia, the Maison Delisle chooses the Art Déco style, with a reward at the Universal Exhibition of Rio de Janeiro in 1922.
Extending its competences with the edition of contemporary creations, the Maison Delisle continues to supply the ancient royal mansions such as the Grand Trianon, Louveciennes or the Coronation room in Versailles.
