Rare pair of solid mahogany chairs with rectangular openwork backs decorated with finely fluted columns ending in capitals supporting arcatures. The horseshoe-shaped seat rests on four fluted spindle feet connected to the cross pieces by flowered dice.
Upholstery redone by our craftsman upholsterer (natural horsehair) and covered with silk from Tassinari and Chatel.

The two chairs are stamped under the crosspieces " G. Iacob " for " Georges Jacob "*.

Parisian work of the Louis the XVIth period, circa 1780, by Georges Jacob.

Height : 88cm ; Depth : 43.5cm; Width : 40cm

Our opinion :

The pair of chairs we present is characteristic of the most beautiful neoclassical productions of Georges Jacob. The columns with capitals are a reference to monuments of Antiquity, while the mahogany announces the "anglomania" that swept through Paris in the 1780s. The stamp of the master, the purity of the lines and the perfect state of conservation are all assets that make the heritage value of these chairs.
*Georges Jacob (1739-1814) was a carpenter received as a master in Paris in 1765.
He is simply one of the most prolific carpenters of the second half of the 18th century.
Supplier of Queen Marie Antoinette, he collaborated with the greatest decorators of his time : Hubert Robert, for example, for the armchairs of the Rambouillet dairy, but also Delafosse or Prieur.
He supplied the palaces of Versailles, St Cloud, Les Tuileries, Fontainebleau...
His period of activity is from 1765-1796.
Then he gave the company to his two sons who founded Jacob Frères.
He died in 1814.
