Alexander Roux "A Rose" Pattern Sofa and Chair
St. Charles Gallery is selling two pieces of attributed Alexander Roux furniture that they describe as being in the form of the “A Rose” pattern. This is my first exposure to this purported pattern. I am unable to find any reference to it anywhere else, though maybe Rare Victorian readers who have run across it before have more information. I’m sure it’s out there somewhere.
I have to say it is not one of my more favorite Roux forms, but it could be more enjoyable in person. I’ve provided a body double picture for the chair at the end of the post. Bidding on the sofa and chair ends April 13th.
