Georges (1739-1814) and his middle son, François-Honoré-Georges Jacob (1770-1841) dit Jacob-Desmalter, employed this stamp between 1803 and 1813. Prior to that, François-Honoré-Georges was in partnership with his elder brother Georges II, when they used the stamp JACOB FRERES RUE MESLEE (1796-1803). However, after Georges II's untimely death in 1803, George Jacob sr., re-joined the firm almost until the end of his life.
Both the scrolled backs and the bold carving of the wings of these splendid fauteuils feature in more or less identical form on the fauteuils which were supplied by JACOB-DESMALTER for the chambre à coucher of Empress Joséphine in 1809. These are now in the so-called Chambre de la Reine des Belges at the Grand Trianon, which was redecorated by Louis-Philippe in 1845 (D. Ledoux-Lebard, Le Grand Trianon, Paris, 1975, p. 186).
