P.E. Guerin

(1857 - )


P.E. Guerin is the oldest decorative metalwork foundry in the United States.

The company was established in 1857 by the French immigrant Pierre Emmanuel Guerin and by 1892 had relocated to Greenwich Village. The firm capitalised on the building boom in New York City in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, supplying mounts for the public buildings and private residences of clients including the Fricks, Vanderbilts and Morgans.
