Catalogue Note

Jean-Louis-Benjamin Gros was recorded as an ébéniste and marqueteur at 27 rue des Blancs-Manteaux until 1850 and then at 43 rue des Tournelles until 1863. He was associated with the Winckelsen firm acting as its main cabinet-maker. Jean-Louis Benjamin's son, Aristide-Henry, took over the business following his retirement. Both father and son exhibited at the major 19th century universal exhibitions and won a mention honorable in 1855.
