Biblio: The Beurdeley family constitutes one of the most important dynasties of furniture manufacturers in the 19th century. They took their art to a level of skill rarely equaled. They practiced for three generations from 1818 to 1895. The Beurdeleys are particularly renowned for the quality of their gilded bronze frames and the choice of precious materials for the decoration of their furniture and their objects of art. Alfred, like his colleagues Dasson, Grohé and Fourdinois, participated in the prestigious Universal Exhibition of 1878 where he received the gold medal. This success allowed him to open a gallery in New York. His participation in the Universal Exhibition of 1883 in Amsterdam ensured even greater success. He was made a Knight of the Legion of Honor.
