Charles-Honoré Lannuier American

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 774

This unusually wide scroll-back armchair is in the style of Duncan Phyfe (1768–1854) but bears a fragment of the bilingual printed label of the French-émigré cabinetmaker Charles- Honoré Lannuier. It is the only scroll-back chair among the many known New York examples that is documented to a specific shop by a label or signature.

Armchair, Charles-Honoré Lannuier (France 1779–1819 New York), Mahogany, American
