Since 1930, the barthélémy foundry has been casting bronze in the village of Crest, in the Drome département in southern France.
This area, located between the Rhone river valley and the Vercors moutain range, at the gateway to Provence, has long been very popular with tourists. The region symbolizes our long-standing tradition as bronze-founders. Our deeply-rooted savoir-faire and our strong passion for our noble craft add true value to each one of our pieces.
The barthélémy foundry perpetuates tradition using the working methods inherited from past generations of master foundry craftsmen.
The quality casting of the pieces is the fruit of deeply-rooted manual dexterity and the skillful eye of our founders.
Continuing to draw from its long-standing expertise, the barthélémy foundry has also integrated leading-edge technological production methods, which have improved production quality and added a new dimension of flexibility.
The Barthélémy foundry is also home to an art foundry which is a leading center in France in the fields of the decorative arts and signs.
