Beautiful mahogany, mahogany veneer, lemon tree and ebony sofa, Directoire period Work, (late 18th century circa 1795-1800).
This bench is typical of the so-called Etruscan style, very fashionable at the end of the 18th century and directly inspired by excavations from Greco-Roman antiquity, drawn by painter David. Not stamped, our seat is certainly the work of one of the greatest Parisian seatmakers, most probably Georges Jacob.
Its roll-up backrest, its mahogany and iridescent lemon tree veneer reminds Madame Recamier's Jacob set exhibited at the Louvre Museum (in a simpler version), guided our inspiration for the restoration.
Note : the filter of our digital camera modifies the cover's blue colour, which is closer to blue-grey (a coupon can be sent on request).
Our sofa is thus a real prototype, a precursor of what will later become the Empire style, the work of a great 18th century "designer" !
Excellent condition, old restorations. The varnish and blue cover are new. Very nice model, rare collector's item, easy to place anywhere due to its small size.
