*Jean-Baptiste III Lelarge (1743-1802) is a carpenter received master on February 1, 1775.
Son and grandson of carpenters in seats bearing the same first name and also established rue de Cléry, Jean Baptiste III Lelarge produced seats in the Transition and Louis XVI style of undeniable class.

If the archives of the Garde-Meuble do not mention his name, he works extensively for a wealthy French and foreign clientele, among whom we find the King of Portugal. It is possible that he made - during the first years of his career - Louis XV chairs, but the use of the same stamp as that of his father does not confirm this statement. This is why only Louis XVI models are commonly attributed to him. Most of Jean-Baptiste Lelarge's seats bear witness to a very beautiful appearance: robust, not heavy, rigorously constructed, impeccably assembled, they are adorned with simple moldings or fine and incisive sculptures, well distributed, without overloading.
He is unquestionably one of the best seat carpenters of the reign of Louis XVI.
