Lingerie Chest Signed Alexander Roux
I just noticed this signed Alexander Roux piece in today’s Bob Courtney sale. It is always exciting to have a Roux piece bearing the original stencil of it’s maker. The expected sale range reflects this importance ($15,000 to $20,000) and it will be interesting to watch what price this item closes at since it is a more simple design and has some veneer issues around the inlay.
Judging by the date in the stenciled label of “French Cabinet Maker” Alexander Roux, this desk was made between 1850 and 1867 due to the 479 and 481 Broadway location and not the 1880 assertion in the listing. Roux locations and dates can be referenced on our Alexander Roux bio page.
