This chair closely resembles a pair stamped by Georges II Jacob and his brother Francois-Honoré-Georges, the Jacob Frères who traded from 1796-1803 under the stamp Jacob Frères, rue Meslée.
The Jacob pair are inlaid with ebony clasps beneath the Egyptian heads and with confronting swans on the seat-rails.
