This exceptional Charles X mahogany drum table, attributed to Alphonse Giroux and Company of Paris, a firm celebrated for their small luxury objets d'art and furniture created with precious materials. The table is conceived in the early 19th century Gothic Revival manner, a design that extends from the beautifully inlaid, circular revolving top, to the pedestal, supported by an architectural, tripod system of arches and flying buttresses. Furnished with four frieze drawers, this rare table is an excellent example of the refined and luxurious Charles X style. The firm of Alphonse Giroux was established in 1799 in Paris. In 1838, the business expanded and began operations under the name of Giroux & Cie., frequently winning medals at the Exposition des Produits de L'Industrie Française. Circa 1820 49” diameter x 30 ½” high Alphonse Giroux was a relative of Louis Jacques Mandé Daguerre, the French artist and scientist who invented the daguerreotype. Giroux contributed to Daguerre’s success by making the first and largest series production of the photographic camera, “La Daguerrotype,” of fine walnut.
