Alphonse Giroux et Cie was a famous tabletterie and curiosity shop located in Paris, 7 rue du Coq-Saint-Honoré. The house flourished throughout the middle years of the 19th century. From 1838 the company was directed by the two sons, Alphonse-Gustave and Andre and in 1839 they were awarded a silver medal at the Paris Industrial Exhibition, being ranked No. 1 in luxury shopping. The house of Giroux ceased trading in 1885.
