Jules Florange started his auction activity in 1894, and in 1922 took on Louis Ciani as junior partner. The partnership dissolved in 1929, but the parting must have been amicable, because Ciani auctioned Florange’s Lorraine collection after his death in 1937 (see lot 2358). The last Florange auction was in 1934, but the firm revived to issue a few price lists 1950-1964.
