In 1867, the Maison Alphonse Giroux, founded in 1799, was taken over by Duvinage and Harinkouck. From 1870 until his death, the firm was under the sole direction of Ferdinand Duvinage and was renowned for its exotic and Japonisme creations in the decorative arts.
The type of highly decorative and superbly executed marquetry featured on the present piece was patented by Duvinage and Harinkouck in 1877 and was probably first shown at the Paris Exposition Universelle of 1878.
Ferdinand Duvinage won a Silver Medal at the Paris Exposition Universelle of 1867.
