Additional Information

Style: Neo-Baroque (1860-1890)

Anticipated in England in the first half of the 19th century on reminiscences of the Elizabethan style, it returns in vogue around 1870, but interpreted in a very free way. At the beginning it represents a response to the frivolity of the neo-rococo, but soon expires in a pompous and eclectic style that combines severe sixteenth-century elements with sculptural decorations of the early seventeenth century. The furniture is massive, richly carved and carved, in dark patina wood. Masks, cornices, columns carved with herms that make up typical architectural structures of Renaissance palaces, are the elements that characterize the neo-Renaissance style. It was an era in which we saw the revival and the revival of ancient forms with a typically Renaissance taste, large carvings were used for an all-round, deeper and three-dimensional vision, the use of feral legs in chests and wardrobes, squares and moldings, cornices, ashlar and nails, Romanesque ornamental motifs but also acanthus leaves, scrolls and lion heads. Often in this period the furniture is made using ancient materials and parts of Renaissance furniture. Walnut was often used but also less hard essences such as poplar or others as they were often darkened and presented in black.

Main essence: Oak

Under the name of oak or oak various types of woods derived from plants of the genus quercus are grouped. They are always resistant, hard and compact woods. Oak is lighter than oak, both are used for more rustic furniture or for the interiors of French and English antique furniture. In other processes it was gradually replaced by the advent of exotic woods considered more valuable since the 18th century.
