A Tradition of Excellence
Henri Studio started seventy years ago when an adventurous, talented and modest young man arrived in America from his native Italy. Eneri Prosperi was born in the picturesque village of Bagni di Lucca in romantic Tuscany, for centuries the regional home of Italy’s artists and sculptors. Eneri transported his Old World craftsmanship to his new home, eventually arriving in Chicago, where he began to pour his first concrete creations in the basement of his bungalow in the early 1960s. This was the inception of Henri Studio, where the Prosperi family grew their skills and their business, eventually making Henri the world’s leading name in cast stone fountains and garden decor.
Today, that Old World craftsmanship is combined with modern manufacturing processes to create Henri’s premium quality line of cast stone fountains, birdbaths, planters, statuary and garden decor. From classic to contemporary, from traditional to whimsical, Henri’s extraordinary range is incomparable. Still located in the Chicago area, Henri Studio distributes its popular products exclusively to garden retailers across the United States and Canada, and around the world — Tricker's is one of these exclusive dealers. Henri’s inspired designs, rich colors, and thoughtful engineering have made sought after Henri products essential to virtually any home, garden or landscape.
Since 2008, Henri Studio features The Brass Baron, the acclaimed collection of premium bronze pond statues and garden sculptures. The Brass Baron is quality peerless, exuding style and engaging the imagination. With the resonance of treasured heirlooms, Brass Baron creations enhance gracious living — and are a perfect complement to the Henri Studio line.
Their fountains and statuary are all expertly engineered and skillfully made in the USA. The result is an evolving legacy of beauty. Henri fountains and garden decor continue to enhance distinctive homes and landscapes, adding elegance and enjoyment to outdoor living spaces throughout the world.
Creativity and quality are their passions. Enjoy our Henri Studio creations now, and for many years to come.
At Henri Studio, The Creativity Continues To Your Backyard.
Maintenance and Care
Simply apply a WX12 Sealer or paste wax at least monthly, to polish and protect. Otherwise, expect an "ageing" effect as some finished will oxidize revealing a verdigris or other patina.
Neither Tricker's nor the factory is responsible for the effects of using cleaning or restoration products on your brass decor. They have been designed to age and weather gracefully. However, we do recognize that some consumers cautiously employ professional methods to clean the bronze patina.

What is the Difference Between Brass and Bronze Decor?
Brass consists of copper and zinc that provides more strength and ductility whereas bronze consists mostly of copper with tin and phosphorus, manganese. Bronze may also have aluminum, or silicon depending on the process and application. Bronze is 4x more expensive than brass.
Your Brass Baron decor body is brass and may have a bronze patina (finish) that can be scoured away. That is why it's important to not ruggedly scrub your decor if it has a patina. Your brass decor may have a copper "verdigris" patina, aged copper that is aqua/greenish/bluish depending on how it's prepared. The verdigris is a natural ageing process that is expedited during manufacturing to give you a beautiful statue, fountain, or other decor.
America's Oldest Water Garden Specialist established in 1892
In the 1920s and 1930s, William Tricker delivered aquatics locally with trucks to customers. This practice is still done today.
William Tricker, Inc.® is a leading grower of aquatic plants, supplier of water garden products and aquarium supplies. Our aquatic greenhouses have produced superior plants for over a century. Customers have been receiving quality aquativ plants and animals that make water gardening easy and fun to do. Purchase with confidence at Tricker's.
William Tricker (born 1853) started his commercial water lily culture in the United States in the late 1800's when he started hybridizing water lilies and studied what helps their growth. The shape, colors and hardiness of his beautiful aquatic plants have withstood the test of time.
In the early 1890's, he earned a reputation as a leader in aquatic lifeforms from hybridiing many water lilies. His water lily nursery and company, in both Ohio and Pennsylvania, was passed down tthrough his family until the 1980's when Richard Lee purchased the Ohio company. In 1892, the first William Tricker mail-order catalog was mailed to customers across the nation, and we still do, today.
