Additional Information

Style: Early Victorian (1830-1850)

The term Victorian refers to one of the predominant styles used during the Victorian era.
Like the latter, it roughly refers to the duration of the reign of Queen Victoria (20 June 1837 - 22 January 1901), from which it took its name.
Characterized by a great expansion of the home furnishing market and by new mechanized production possibilities, but not by great aesthetic innovations, but by the resumption of stylistic elements of various previous eras.

Main essence:

Beech tree

It is a semi-hard wood which, unfortunately, is easily wormed, therefore it is considered poor. Due to its light but variegated shades, from blond to reddish, it was nevertheless appreciated by French cabinetmakers. It was mainly used for furniture structures or, as an alternative to walnut, by provincial English furniture makers for popular works, mostly in the 1700s. The noblest use is due to Thonèt, who applied the steam bending of the beech in the making of the furniture, in particular for the chairs that took his name.

Rosewood

Under the term Rosewood various exotic, hard and heavy woods have been united, characterized by a color that varies from pink to violet. Their origin is usually from Latin America, India and Africa and are still considered very valuable woods. Until the end of the eighteenth century, this name also referred to the bois de violette . In general, rosewood woods began to be imported into Europe starting in 1750 and were first used for veneers and inlays in England, flanked, by contrast, with lighter woods. Later, entire valuable furniture was manufactured both in England, mainly in the Regency style, and in France, starting from the Neoclassical period.
