Additional Information

Notes historical bibliographic

The chest of drawers represents the typical production of the Parisian cabinetmaker of the 80s-90s of the 18th century. Findable in the bibliography we mention: Les ebenistes du XVIII siecle, ed. F. DE NOBELE, Paris 1975

Style: Neo-Classical (1765-1790)

This historical period includes a first phase that can be properly defined as the Louis XVI style.
nOnly at a later time, with the maturation of archaeological fashions, was a new vision of furnishing civilization formulated and codified, now fully attributable to the Neoclassical Style.
In fact, both trends coexisted in unison until the last years of the eighteenth century.
nIn the field of cabinet making, the Directoire, Retour d'Egypte, Consular and Empire styles also fall within the neoclassical era.

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 .

Brazilian Rosewood

It is a hard, light blond wood, but with strong red and pinkish veins, which is obtained from tropical trees similar to rosewood. Its veins are reminiscent of striped tulips, which is why it is called tulipwood in English-speaking areas. It is used for inlays, often combined with bois de violette. In the 1700s and 1800s it was highly appreciated and used in France and England for precious veneers. It gives off scent for decades if not centuries after curing.

Boxwood

With a yellowish color, it is a very compact and hard wood, of oriental origin, which is obtained from evergreen shrubs of the Buxaceae family. It is used for inlays and for all-round workings both as furniture finishes and as small objects and sculptures.

Sessile 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.
