In 1878 J.J. Ducel merged with Val d'Osne. In 1888 Antoine Durenne acquired S.A. de Forges du Val d'Osne and uses Ducel's old Parisian address as his. J.J. Ducel manufactured many ornaments, some of which are authenticated.A similar vase, by Val d'Osne, is illustrated in the book L'âge de la Fonte - un art, une industrie 1800-1914 by Jean-Claude Renard, on page 102.
