The general style of this seat, and more particularly the armrest supports and the way it connects to the cambered foot, recalls very precisely the deliveries of the carpenter Jean-Baptiste Boulard for the duke of Choiseul-Stainville to the Château de Chanteloup around 1770 (see Chanteloup, un moment de grâce autour du duc de Choiseul, cat. exp., musée des beaux-arts de Tours, Paris, 2007, p. 258, fig. 3 ).
