The 'TH' brand was used at the Palais des Tuileries after the Restoration of the Bourbon dynasty.
The design of this gueridon is inspired by a work-table with cassolette by Jacob Frères, which derived from the famous Pompeian tripod in the Naples Archaeological Museum, and was published by C. Percier and P. F. L. Fontaine, Receuil des Décorations Intérieures...1812, pl. 23 (reproduced above). It is inscribed Petite Table de travail, renfermant une Cassolette, exécutée pour Me. M. à Paris. Me. M was in reality the wife of General Moreau.
The Percier table is more elaborately mounted than this or the other known examples. One stamped by Jacob Frères is in the Château de Fontainebleau (illustrated in G. Janneau, Les Meubles, vol. III, pl. 28 and J.-P. Samoyault, Un ameublement /ga la mode en 1802, Le Mobilier du G/aen/aeral Moreau, Paris, 1992, pp.61-62). This was apparnetly ordered by the Premier Consul when he refurnished Saint-Cloud in 1799. It may well have been in the apartements of Josephine. Another, identical to the Fontainebleau example from the collection of Baron de Redé was sold at Sotheby's Monaco, 25-26 May 1975, lot 253.
Although pairs of this model are unusual, one pair with green marble tops was sold from the collection of the marquis de Biron in Paris, 9 June 1914, lot 382, whilst a further pair was sold in Paris, 13 December 1995, lot 177 (with amboyna tops).
