Jean-Paul Mazaroz was a sculptor who began his career working for Ribaillier in the 1850’s. At the Universal Exhibition of 1855, Mazaroz exhibited several pieces of furniture himself. At this point, his success and popularity started to grow, particularly at the Universal Exhibitions of 1867 and 1878, where he won silver medals. The firm disappeared in 1890.
