The store of tableware, curios and cabinetry founded by François-Simon-Alphonse Giroux around 1799 was active from the Consulate at the end of the Second Empire. Giroux participated in the Exhibition of Products of French Industry in 1839 where it was awarded a Silver Medal.
Among the aristocratic clientele of the House of Alphonse Giroux were
Louis XVIII, Charles X and the Duchess of Berry who used to shop there every year until her exile in 1830. There she acquired many precious objects and light wood furniture, which she launched the fashion for making gifts.
