Restoration period 212 x 108.3 x 53.5 cm François-Honoré Jacob-Desmalter was the most renowned cabinetmaker of the First Empire. The Jacob firm, official supplier to Napoleon 1st, exported its furniture, characteristic of the Directoire and Empire styles, throughout Europe. François-Honoré, a friend of Percier and Fontaine, took the nickname Desmalter from one of his family's properties in Burgundy. His father Georges (I) Jacob was the famous cabinetmaker of the Ancien Régime in the 18th century. His brother Georges (II) Jacob worked with him until 1803. His son Georges Alphonse Jacob took over the business in 1825. The Jacob firm was bought by Jeanselme in 1847.
