Footnotes

  • Guillaume Grohé (1808-1885)
    One of the principal furniture makers of his era, German-born Guillaume Grohé came to Paris in 1827 with his brother. Their reputation as master craftsmen and intuitive designs won them favor at the eighth Exposition de l'Industrie in 1834 where they showed Egyptian and Gothic style furnishings. The brothers worked together until 1861, Guillaume continued alone until 1885. In 1862, Grohé showed the extent of his singular talents at the International Exhibition where he won a medal for furniture created in the Louis XVI style. The firm supplied furnishings to Queen Victoria, Louis-Philippe, Napoleon III and Empress Eugenie. Guillaume Grohé was a member of the jury for the Universal Exhibitions. He was vice-president at the 1878 Exhibition in Paris.
