Catalogue Note

This pair of armchairs is stamped by the Jacob brothers, François-Honoré-Georges Jacob (1770-1841) and Georges II (1768-1803), who amalgamated between 1796, the date that Georges I ceded the business to his sons, and 1803, the date that Georges II died. The armchairs are part of set comprising canapés, marquises and side chairs with some in private collections and illustrated by C. Bizot in Mobilier Directoire Empire (pp. 36-37 and 40). An armchair is now in the Musée Marmottan in Paris (ill. in D. Ledoux-Lebard, Les ébénistes du XIXe siècle, Paris, 1984, p. 297).
