Additional Information

Style: Baroque (1630-1730)

The term derives from the Spanish phoneme barrueco or portuguese barroco and literally means "shapeless pearl".
Already around the middle of the eighteenth century in France it was synonymous with unequal, irregular, bizarre, while in Italy the diction was of medieval memory and indicated a figure of the syllogism, an abstraction of thought.
This historical period was identified with the derogatory term of baroque, recognizing in it extravagance and contrast with the criteria of harmony and expressive rigor to which it was intended to return under the influence of Greco-Roman art and the Italian Renaissance.
Baroque, secentista and secentismo were synonymous with bad taste.
As far as furniture is concerned, ideational freedom, the need for pomp and virtuosity originated a synergy destined to produce unsurpassed masterpieces.
The materials deployed were worthy of competing with the most astonishing tales of Marco Polo: lapis lazuli, malachite, amber, ivory, tortoiseshell, gold, silver, steel, precious wood essences and more, dressed the furnishings that by shape and imagination virtually gave life to the a thousand and one nights of many powerful Italians.
Typical of the period were load-bearing or accessory parts resolved with spiral column motifs, clearly inspired by the Berninian canopy of St. Peter, parts with rich sculptural high-relief carving and even in the round within a whirlwind of volutes, cartocci and spirals, curved and broken profiles , copings shaken by gables of articulated shaping, aprons adorned with ornaments, corbels, buttresses and anything else needed to move shapes and structures.
The Baroque is, moreover, the century of illusionism: lacquers and thin tempera flock to furniture and furnishings to imitate with the marbling effects of marble veins or games of precious briars.

Main essence:

Silver 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.

Walnut

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.
