Georges Jacob was one of the two most prominent Parisian furniture makers, producing carved, painted and gilded furniture and upholstery work for the French royal Châteaux, in the early Neoclassical style that is usually associated with Louis XVI. Jacob arrived in Paris in 1754 and apprenticed with the chairmaker Jean-Baptiste Lerouge where he met Louis Delanois, whose advanced neoclassical taste was to have a great influence on Jacob. He received his Master status on 4 September 1765 and set up his own premises. He employed numerous specialist carvers and gilders in his workshop. In 1785, Jacob produced the first mahogany Chairs à L'Anglaise, for the Comte de Provence. He retired in 1796, leaving his workshop in the hands of his sons, one of whom was François-Honoré-Georges Jacob-Desmalter. When his other son died, Jacob returned from retirement to oversee the constant supply of furnishings for Napoleon's residences.
