A comparable armchair illustrated by Nicolay, which has a more elaborately carved frame than the present suite, was part of an extensive suite stamped by Jacob made for the Large Drawing Room at Carlton House and ordered through the marchand-mercier Dominique Daguerre in around 1789. Most of the suite is now at Windsor Castle and Buckingham Palace.

An unstamped carved giltwood armchair by Jacob, from the private appartments of Marie-Antoinette at Fontainebleau, now in the Calouste Gulbenkian Collection, has a similar entwined bow on the top-rail as on the present canapés.
