A large and rare Louis XVI canapé by Henri Jacob (Maître le 29 septembre 1779)

Crafted by master furniture maker Henri Jacob, this fine canapé is a beautiful example of late 18th-century French furniture making

This canapé is a wonderful example of Jacob’s style which incorporated very fine carving, neoclassical elements, and innovative design. With delicate proportions and an exceptional frame, it is a fine example of his work

This canapé is nearly identical in style to a suite also provided by Henri Jacob in the 1780’s to Yolande Martine Gabrielle de Polastron, Duchesse de Polignac for her hotel on Place de la ConcordeHenri Jacob (1753-1824) was the cousin of the famous George Jacob and became master in 1779.  

His creations were very similar to that of his cousins and frequently undistinguishable. It is believed that he too favoured the royal patronage. Examples of his work can be seen in museums such as Versailles, the Louvre and the the Musée Nissim-de-Camondo

France, Circa 1780s
