Additional Information

Style: Charles X (1824-1830)

Referring to a very short period, the denomination of style Carlo X is however significant because it allows to detect some specific elements of the taste of the time.
It can be considered the last phase of the stylistic research of the Restoration, in which bourgeois requests and needs are accepted, and opens up to a taste for the Gothic.
Characterized by wavy and wavy lines, which oppose the more squared ones of the Empire, it mainly uses light woods with darker threads and very few metallic applications.

Time: XIX Century - from 1801 to 1900

Main essence:

Fir

Soft coniferous wood, used for rustic furniture or to build the chest, that is the structure, of furniture then veneered in more precious woods. It has been used since ancient times, its most valuable use is, in the Spruce variant, in the inlays of French antique furniture of the '700 . The spruce, more typical of northern Europe, in Italy grows mainly in the Eastern Alps at altitudes above 1300 m. The noblest use of this essence was in the construction of violins, guitars and cellos: Stradivari himself produced his famous violins with this wood.

Walnuts

Walnut wood comes from the plant whose botanical name is juglans regia , probably originally from the East but very common in Europe. Light or dark brown in color, it is a hard wood with a beautiful grain, widely used in antique furniture. It was the main essence in Italy throughout the Renaissance and later had a good diffusion in Europe, especially in England, until the advent of mahogany. It was used for solid wood furniture and sometimes carvings and inlays, its only big limitation is that it suffers a lot from woodworm. In France it was widely used more than anything else in the provinces. In the second half of the eighteenth century its use decreased significantly because mahogany and other exotic woods were preferred.
