Preemption at Drouot: A Pair of Georges Jacob Chairs Go to the Carnavalet

Published on , by La Gazette Drouot

Recently rediscovered, the chairs by Georges Jacob (1739-1814) were preempted by the Museum of the History of Paris this past Friday. They come from the former Parisian pavilion of Beaumarchais. The Greco-Roman-inspired design, a hallmark of the cabinetmaker, features two swans flanking a stylized urn.
