Welcome to the Jacob Desmalter website. The purpose of this site is threefold. First, to contribute to the general knowledge of the works of the Directoire, Empire and Restauration periods, whether by Jacob or one of his contemporaries.

Second, to aid in the identification and authentication of Jacob works and marks. If requested, we will offer an opinion upon the authenticity of a stamp and/or work, based upon our experience, examples in hand and our substantial image catalog.  Finally, we hope to gather sufficient information to form a catalog raisonné of compelling examples of Jacob Desmalter's privately held work.  If you own a peice by Jacob Desmalter, please send me a photograph of the item and, if possible, the stamp.  Also, please send me authorization to reproduce the images on the web or in a book.

This site also includes discussions of related topics and identifies Jacob's works for sale/auction at various locations around the world.
