Title  Very Important French Directoire period fauteuil armchair signed by George Jacob circa 1796

Description

A museum quality antique original armchair.

A very important French directoire period fauteuil armchair by the famous royal ebeniste (cabinetmaker) George Jacob signed and stamped, circa 1796.

 The elegant gondola back curves and supports beautifully. Two shaped armrests join the front swans neck supports. These scroll down to and join the solid seat frame that is raised my sabre legs.

 

Upholstered in vintage woven sienna yellow fabric covering the back and separate drop in seat.

Apart from the signatures and stamps of authenticity the  beautiful rich original patina to the solid mahogany frame is a value point.

The master cabinet maker's stamped signature ( IACOB) appears under the from seat rail.

The upholsterer's ink signature appears to the inside seat rail.

 

George Jacob ( 1739-1814) was one of the most famous French cabinet maker's of his time. His works for the King of France Louis XVI and later Napoleon 1st and Josephine are highly sought after and are very rare.

During the Ancient Regime under the Kings of France  only master cabinet makers were allowed to stamp and sign their furniture as a guarantee of authenticity by the master as a member of the Paris Guild of master cabinetmakers.

George Jacob's own stamp appears in the ancient spelling as IACOB.

This stamp was used from 1765-1796  the year of his retirement after which his sons took over the workshop. With the ascent of Napoleon, George Jacob returned from retirement to help oversee the constant supply of funiture to Napoleon's residences.

It is possible that this armchair may have introduced the newly marrier Mrs Josphine to Napoleon Bonaparte ( formerly known as Marie-Rose de Tascher de la Pagerie ) to the sculptural design element of the swan.

Swans became a much identified symbol of the Empress Josephine due to the interior design work by architects Percier and Fontaine specifically for the Chateau Malmaison from 1799 till 1814.

In either case whether this chair dates from 1796 or 1804, this chair is certainly by the hand of the master George Jacob and is authenticated by his stamp.

Title   Antique provincial solid elm fireside chair with brass makers plaque  carved saddle seat turned legs

Description

Antique provincial solid elm fireside chair with brass makers plaque  carved saddle seat turned legs.

The fireside style refers to a sturdy chair with a back rest that allows for a standing person to rest their elbows on the back of the chair.

T.E. GANE  ...Newport  UK.

 

The business was begun by Henry Trapnell in 1824 in Host Street. As it developed new premises were acquired in St.James's Barton, Queen's Street, St.Michael's and Barrs Street, St.Paul's. In 1860 the headquarters of the business moved to College Green. By 1889 branches had opened in both Cardiff and Newport. A final expansion of the firm's manufacturing resources took place in 1903 when a five-floor factory was opened in Hill Street, Bristol.

During the 19th century, Henry Trapnell's sons William and Caleb helped build up the business. Philip Endres Gane, who had been employed since boyhood, was taken into partnership and at the end of the century took over proprietorship.

In 1851 an imposing exhibit was designed and made by the firm's craftsmen for the Great Exhibition and in the following year there is record of a notable exhibit prepared for the Paris Exhibition. Royalty, too, were furnished direct in the 19th century and the furnishing of reception rooms for royal visits was often entrusted to the firm.

In 1909 a private limited company was formed of which Philip Endres Gane was chairman and managing director.
