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 early seventeenth-century sculptural decorations.
The furniture is solid, richly carved and carved, in wood with a dark patina.
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 the caissons and in the wardrobes, squares and moldings, frames, ashlar and nails, Romanesque ornamental motifs but also acanthus leaves, cartouches and lion heads.
Often in this period the furniture is built using ancient materials and parts of Renaissance furniture.
Walnut was often used but also less hard essences such as poplar or others since they were often darkened and presented in black.

Main essence:

Cedar

Coniferous wood, originally from Lebanon in its most widespread variant, was already used by the ancient Egyptians in the construction of boats and coffins. The biblical quotation that notes that Solomon's palace had 45 columns of cedar is significant. Light in color, with a beautiful reddish vein and a characteristic and appreciated fragrance, it was used by French cabinetmakers especially for inlays and also in the creation of small objects.

Elm tree

Very hard and compact wood, which comes from ulmus campestris . It is distinguished by its reddish brown color. It was mainly used for rustic furniture in France, Holland and Scandinavia. In England, however, it was also used a lot in inlay work.
