Notes historical bibliographic

This type of Longcase oriental style is typical of the second quarter of the EIGHTEENTH century. The richness of the decoration and care of the architectural construction of the case suggest that the object was for a good customer. The watchmaker Thomas Phippard is documented between 1722 and il1768. It keeps him also a sort of advertisement, extracted from the Salisbury Journal of November 21, 1748 .

Style: George II (1730-1760)

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, cabinetmaking 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.
The sensibility 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 to make well-defined choices: Th. Chippendale, R. Adam, G. Hepplewhite and Th. Sheraton.

Main essence: 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.
