Signed Alexander Roux Cabinet
A rare Louis XIV-style Cabinet having the original label of Alexander Roux, composed of ebonised wood with floral inlay and having a rosewood interior, bronze caryatids and trim, and a black slate top. American, c. mid-19th century.
Roux (1813-1886) was a French-trained ébéniste [cabinetmaker] who opened a shop in New York in 1836, quickly becoming one of the most sought-after furniture makers in the city by the 1850s. Most of his work is attributed; it is extremely rare to find a piece with his original label.
