François Loret for the Garde-Meuble Impérial

Chair with cabriolet back
Pegged seat
Paris, 1811
Dimensions: 

This chair rests on front legs with double balusters and sabre-shaped back legs. The belt is moulded and the connecting dice are finely carved with flowers. The model is not very common because of the slight rounding of the back.
We note the presence of the stamp on the front and the stenciled F inventory of 1856 on the left crossbar. 
The latter gives us a precise location: 4th floor of the Louis XV wing is "secondary". The set of a bergère, 4 armchairs and 4 chairs was covered with an interesting "cotton twill tiger skin". The whole set was sold in 1885 and nothing remains in the castle today.
This chair is part of the original set of 36 delivered in 1811 of the support order, whose destination is unfortunately not specified.

François Loret : established rue du Faubourg Saint-Antoine then rue de Charenton, he produced sober and quality pieces until the Restoration.

Napoleon: "Fontainebleau, the true home of kings, the house of the centuries
The only palace continuously inhabited from the 12th to the 19th century, the Château de Fontainebleau enjoyed a particularly sumptuous period under the First Empire (1804-1815) thanks to the new lease of life given to the palace. Emptied of its furniture after the Revolution, Napoleon's patronage initiated a second renaissance of the château. During Napoleon I's visits (1804, 1807, 1809, 1810), which were rich in political and family events, the Emperor's deep attachment to the palace was confirmed. By having the former home of the kings of France restored at great expense, under the direction of the architects Charles Percier and Pierre-François-Léonard Fontaine, the Emperor showed the eminent place he wished to give back to Fontainebleau among the other imperial residences, such as the Tuileries, Saint Cloud, Compiègne, Rambouillet, etc. The roofs were restored, the interior decorations restored, the flats extensively refurnished, a throne room created, the theatre renovated and the Louis XV wing fitted out for the princes.
