Leleu, along with Ruhlman, were the most significant Art Deco designers of the 1920s.

Mahogany console by Alexander Roux,
signed "Alexander Roux / 478 B-Way / NY"
Roux's shop was located at this address between 1838-1848.
This is a rare early signed work by one of America's most important cabinet maker of the 19th century.
Alexander Roux (1813–1886) was a French-trained cabinet maker, who emigrated to the United States in the 1830s. In 1837 he opened a shop in NYC. The business grew quickly: by the 1850s he was one of America's most successful and important furniture makers, employing over 120 craftsmen.
Roux specialized in ornate Rococo Revival style, but produced many others. His work is highly sought by collectors, with larger and more complex pieces fetching large sums. One of his sideboards was featured in a 2000 exhibit at New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art. see: http://www.metmuseum.org/toah/works-of-art/68.100.1
