This exceptional Charles X mahogany drum table is attributed to Alphonse Giroux et Cie. of Paris, a firm celebrated for their small luxury objets d'art and furniture crafted with precious materials. The table is conceived in the early 19th-century Gothic Revival manner, with a design that includes a beautifully inlaid, circular revolving top and a pedestal supported by an architectural 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.
