Guillaume and Jean-Michel Grohe founded Grohé Frères and worked as cabinet makers in Paris between 1829-1884. Renowned for the high quality of their furniture, they ultimately became suppliers to royal houses across Europe, including the Courts of Queen Victoria and Napoleon III. Examples of their work can be found in The Louvre and Fontainebleau in France and Windsor Castle in Britain. The present works came from the Lounsbury House in Ridgefield, Connecticut.
