Crafted by master furniture maker Georges Jacob in around 1780, this fine armchair is an exciting example of late 18th-century French furniture making. With a beautiful patina of distressed gilding this chair is elegant, refined, and a tasteful statement.
The French royal family provided the majority of Georges Jacob’s commissions and he was charged with providing an extensive number of stools, tables, chairs, and beds to the royal family and their palaces.
This chair 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.
Jacob is best known for his chairs and those he has produced are found in the finest collections in the world including the British Royal Collection at Windsor Castle and Buckingham Palace, the collection of the Metropolitan Museum in New York, the Victoria & Albert Museum in London, the Wallace Collection, Versailles, and the Louvre.
This chair is stamped with Georges Jacob’s maker’s mark and is currently available to purchase.
