Charles X/Restauration chair en cabriolet.
Original : private collection (Austria).
This chair could very well be dated before the period of the last brother of Louis XVI : Charles X, but its lightness corresponds to this style. It has grace without ostentation. The Jacob legs, invented by Jacob - Desmalter will be noted. François Honore, one of the brothers running the company Jacob Freres, founded with his father Georges the company Jacob - Desmalter et Cie at Rue Meslee in 1803 (until 1925). This company was very important indeed at the time.
