Catalogue Note

The overall design of the present daybed can be compared with similar examples made by Jacob Frères; the distinctive legs appear not only on daybeds, but also on seat furniture made during the collaboration of Georges II Jacob and François-Honoré-Georges Jacob between 1796 and 1803.  A  daybed of almost identical overall design was made by Jacob Frères for the Château de Neuilly, illustrated, Denise Ledoux-Lebard, Les Ebénistes du XIX siècle, Paris, 1984, p. 269.
