This cabinet shares several decorative elements to a cabinet labeled Roux, currently in the collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, and illustrated in 19th-Century America, Furniture and Other Decorative Arts (Metropolitan Museum, 1970), cat. no. 164. The cabinet in the Metropolitan Museum can be dated to 1866 based upon the presence of fragments of a German-language newspaper found behind the porcelain mounts.
The similar decorative elements include the bold use of contrasting woods, the figural plaque above the central door, a large porcelain plaque in the center of the central door, the wheat-sheaf marquetry on the outer pilasters, the Ionic captials above them, and the decorative treatment of the feet.
Another related cabinet by Roux is in the collection of the Munson-Williams-Proctor and illustrated in Anna Tobin D'Ambrosio Masterpieces of American Furniture from the Munson-Williams-Proctor Institute, (Syracuse University Press, 1999), pp. 106-107, cat. no. 36. The Munson-Williams-Proctor cabinet is stamped "A. Roux" in four locations on the back.
