Additional Information

Style: George III (1750-1810)

It is part of the so-called "Georgian" period.
This term designates the stylistic activity that took place in England between 1714 and 1830 and included the reigns of George I, George II, George III and George IV.
It is characterized, at its beginnings, by an attitude of reaction to the Baroque.
Precise characteristics and distinctions of this style are not clearly identifiable in the furniture created in England in the eighteenth century.
In the first half of this century, cabinet-making and the products of the various categories of English applied art were affected by the continuous changes in taste and manifested, in the diversity of trends and influences, the uncertainty of a precise stylistic orientation.
In the second half of the eighteenth century, the sensitivity and exceptional ingenuity of four strong personalities, destined to guide the English taste and customs of the time, intervened in the second half of the eighteenth century: Th. Chippendale, R. Adam, G. Hepplewhite and Th. Sheraton.

Main essence:

Maple

Hard, light wood used for inlays. It grows mainly in Austria, but it is widespread throughout the northern hemisphere, from Japan to North America, passing through China and Europe. It is one of the lightest woods ever, tending to white, it is similar to lime or birch wood. The briar is used in the production of ancient secretaires .

Mahogany

It is one of the most precious and sought-after woods in cabinet making. It was discovered in Central America around 1600 and began to be imported to England in the 1700s. Much appreciated for its hardness and indestructibility, it became widespread following the blocking of walnut exports from France in 1720 and the consequent elimination of English import duties on mahogany from the colonies in America and India. The most valuable version comes from Cuba, but it became very expensive. At the end of the 18th century it began to be used also in France in Louis XVI, Directory and Empire furniture, its diffusion declined starting from when Napoleon, in 1810, forbade its import. It was generally used in the manufacture of elegant furniture, due to its characteristics and beautiful grain.

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.
