Rare and Important American Rococo Revival Fifteen-Piece Oak Dining Set

third quarter 19th century, labeled Alexander Roux, New York, consisting of a marble-top sideboard, the crest with a carved stag's head above two graduated open shelves, the base retaining its original Breche d'Alep dished marble top, the doors with large applied carved plaques of game and fruit, the inside of the left drawer bearing the stenciled label, "From A. Roux, French Cabinet Maker, Nos. 479 & 481 Broadway, New York", h. 98", w. 67", d. 24", a circular table with a center split pedestal and four extended legs with carved fruit and turned columnar supports, retaining two 17" leaves, h. 30", dia. 54", extended length with two leaves, 88", overall extended length if all leaves were present, 193", and twelve chairs consisting of a pair of armchairs with knotted rope-carved details in the back and raised on cabriole legs, h. 37-1/2", w. 21", d. 25", and ten matching side chairs, h. 34", w. 18", d. 18", and a metamorphic dessert stand with three open shelves, h. 31-1/2", ext. h. 46", w. 45", d. 21-1/2".


Provenance: William Franklin Anderson (1826-1901), Colorado Springs, Colorado; thence by descent to Jane Anderson Joy (1870-1951), St. Louis, Missouri and Seattle, Washington; thence by descent to Anderson Stickney Joy (1900-1988), Colorado Springs, Colorado and Seattle, Washington; thence by descent to Douglas Barnard Joy (1930-2016), Seattle, Washington and Mesa, Arizona; thence by descent to present owner.

Notes: The original owner of this exceptional dining set was William Franklin Anderson, one of the pioneering settlers of Colorado Springs and one of its most eminent citizens. Anderson was born, raised and schooled in Virginia, before venturing West in 1848. Settling first in St. Louis, where he was part owner of a dry-goods firm and then a successful broker, he eventually made his way to Colorado Springs. In Colorado, Anderson was responsible for the building and maintenance of the Bank Building, a business block which was the first such block of importance in the soon flourishing city.
In 1859, Anderson wed Sarah Francis Stickney, the daughter of Benjamin Stickney, the proprietor of The Planter's House Hotel in St. Louis, Missouri. The hotel was a grand, four-story structure with over 300 rooms, all richly outfitted with the most opulent fittings and furnishings created by the leading artisans and craftspeople of the day.
The set offered here has descended through five generations of the family. Similar sideboards to the one in this lot are conserved at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York and The Newark Museum.
