Although not signed, this important and rare chair is most certainly from the Paris workshop of Georges Jacob, maitre ebeniste to Louis XVI in 1765 and working until 1796. Stylistically the form of this chair is an early example of the transitioning of French taste preceding the Revolution from traditional French designs to the emerging academic neoclassical styles of what becomes the Directoire and Empire. Provenance: Private New York City collection.
