Denise Ledoux-Lebard, Les Ebénistes Parisiens du XIXe siècle, Paris, 1965,plate LXXII.
This commode with its stylised `Grecian' torch columns reflects those on the angles of a commode, formerly part of a suite, which was sold as lot 119, Christie's, London, 9th June 1994. This commode reflects in some part the collaboration between the Jacob family especially Jacob-Desmalter, the second son of Georges Jacob and his friends the designers Percier and Fontaine, whose design book, Receuil de Decorations Interieures published between 1801 and 1812, includes furniture with these torch columns-see plate 40( I ). Also see a secrétaire and commode both signed by Jacob-Desmalter with the `Grecian' torch angles (Anc. coll. Grognot and Joinel), illustrated by Ledoux-Lebard, op. cit., plate LXXII.
