Henri Mouynet was a producer of bronze and forged iron lighting fixtures during the interbellum.
His lamps were mainly in a neo-classical style but he also produced lighting in a more modern Art Deco style.
In 1926 he built a huge building at 11 rue Etienne Marcel prolongée (taday named Roger Verlomme street).
The Business was forced into liquidation and sold to H.Markhbeinn in 1937.
The moulded-pressed glass signed H.Mouynet were produced by the well known glass maker’s of Degué and Schneider.
