Georges-Alphonse Jacob-Desmalter (1799-1870) is a Parisian cabinetmaker. He succeeded his father, François-Honoré-Georges Jacob-Desmalter in 1825, at the head of the family workshop founded by his grandfather, Georges Jacob.
He worked for the Crown Furniture Guard under Charles X and Louis Philippe. He ended his cabinetmaking activity in 1847 to devote himself to architecture.



Our opinion :

This type of office armchair appeared under the consulate, and was very successful during the 1st Empire and the restoration.
Some models very similar to our copy are stamped by Jacob D rue Meslée (1803-1813) and allow us to attribute with certainty the origins of this seat to this master.
One of these seats recently went into public sale, Sotheby’s collection Dillée 18 and 19 March 2015 lot 387 (8750 euros).
If the office model is particularly well known, our model transformed into a library staircase is new according to our research.
Grandson of Georges Jacob and son of Jacob Desmalter, Georges Alphonse continued the family tradition by producing numerous seats and furniture for royal furnishings, under the direction of Percier and Fontaine who were also architects of the kings Louis XVIII, Charles X, and Louis Philippe.
