Context: Georges Jacob, one of the foremost cabinet and chairmakers in France in the last quarter of the eighteenth century, furnished the apartments of the nobility and the royal family of France. This elegant early neoclassical daybed with its separate ottoman, stamped by Jacob on the frame, was probably commissioned for a child or a very small adult.
