Advent will begin in a couple of days and I'll focus mostly on sacred art throughout December. I'd like, however, to post just one or two secular items before November closes.
I'm not much on furniture as a rule. Nor on royalty. Take one quick look, however, at Napoleon's Throne Chair at the Google Art Project and I think you'll agree that it's beautiful. It was made c. 1805 by François-Honoré-Georges Jacob-Desmalter.
