Additional Information

Style: Louis XV (1722-1774)

The chronological terms of this stylistic phase only approximately coincide with the years of the reign of the French sovereign (from 1722 to 1774).
It has in fact been seen that already in the period of the Orleans regency there are precognitions and extensive developments in the Rococo sense, and moreover since the 1950s the change in taste in the Neoclassical sense becomes full-blown fashion already around 1760.

Age: 18th Century / 1701 - 1800

18th Century / 1701 - 1800

Main essence: Cherry

Obtained from prunus cerasus , a plant of oriental origin, it is a hard wood with a light and delicate color, with a reddish vein. Due to its diffusion and availability it was used in Europe in popular furniture. In cabinet making, in the seventeenth century, it was widely used in France and England for inlay work. In Italy it was very successful in Lucca. It was also very popular in the United States for the manufacture, from the late 1600s, of commonly used furniture.
