A very fine pair of carved painted fauteuils or open armchairs in the Louis XVI style, the shaped backs with palmette carving and upholstered medallion back rests, the swooping arms with padded rests and acanthus carving, set upon turned fluted legs headed with paterae, the seat frames richly carved with guilloche pattern.

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.
