This pair of open armchairs follows closely the designs of Geroges Jacob (1739-1814, master 1765). Jacob was perhaps the most highly regarded master menuisier in Paris and he produced the finest carved, painted and upholstered furniture of the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries. His name is synonymous with the finest furniture making of this period and his creations for the French royal châteaux (particularly Versailles), in the early Neoclassical style, are closely associated with the Louis XVI Period.
