DUVINAGE

Ferdinand Duvinage and Mr Harinkouck, took over the celebrated Maison Giroux in 1867, although Harinckouk is no longer mentioned within the business after 1870.

Under Duvinage, the business reached new levels of success, exhibiting at the 1867 Paris Exposition Universelle, where it received a silver medal and at Vienna in 1873, where it was awarded two medals of merit.

Ferdinand Duvinage died between 1874 and 1877 leaving the management of the business to his wife, Rosalie.

Maison Giroux continued with great success until 1885.

One of Duvinage's major works is a cabinet now in the Musée d'Orsay illustrated in Ledoux-Lebard Les Ebénistes du XIX Siècle.
