The shop of Alphonse Giroux et Cie was located at 7, rue du Coq-Saint-Honoré and continued from the Consulate at the end of the second French Empire. François-Simon-Alphonse Giroux created a shop at the end of the 18th century and at the Restoration in 1834 he became a cabinet maker. He became a supplier to the aristocracy and the royal entourage. Around 1837, he retired and entrusted his succession. This famous store exhibited at the Exhibition of French Industry in 1839 and won a silver medal. They became suppliers of the Second Empire until 1867.

This pair of frames is characteristic of the Historical style that develops during the Second Empire.
