Catalogue Note

Louis-François Bellangé was the younger brother of Pierre-Antoine Bellangé.  Before the revolution he was a menuisier-ébéniste, his trade label announced: Bellangé Le Jne. Menuisier-Ebéniste et en bâtiment, rue du Faubourg-Saint Martin à Paris.  He supplied furniture to Napoleon I circa 1811.  Seat furniture and tables which he produced frequently incorporated carved lion's masks and supports similar to those on the offered armchairs.  A very similar set of seat furniture stamped L. Bellangé, with curved backrests and almost identical lions' head terminals and leaf-carved animal legs was sold, Christie's, London, June 12, 1997, lot 115.  Another suite, formerly in the collection of Madame Rosine Stern was sold, Ader, Paris, April 20, 1932.
