This pair of trellis-back chairs is from a set made by the leading Parisian menuisier or chair and bed-maker, Georges Jacob. They were supplied through the marchand-mercier (dealer-decorator) Dominique Daguerre to the future George IV for use at his London residence Carlton House. At this time, the Prince of Wales was pursuing a highly refined French neo-classical style of interior decoration.
