    Jean-Baptiste III Lelarge, maître in 1775.

    The stamp of I.B. Lelarge most likely refers to Jean-Baptiste III Lelarge, who used the same stamp as his father, Jean-Baptiste II Lelarge (maître in 1738) who died in 1771, at which point his son took over his father's atelier. Jean-Baptiste III received his maîtrise in 1775 and quickly established a good reputation working for wealthy patrons both in France and abroad and also for the King of Portugal.
