This exquisite little console table derives from Southern Germany. It shows the typical features of the 17th-18th century baroque design vocabulary. Consequently acanthus leaves and scrollwork embellish its otherwise symmetrical structure.
During the 17th century, the Baroque style had a marked effect upon furniture design throughout western Europe. Large wardrobes, cupboards, and cabinets had twisted columns, broken pediments, and heavy moldings.
The Baroque style was adopted in the Low Countries in the 1620s and extended late into the 17th century, when Germany and England began to develop it.
In southern Germany the French influence on furniture design was more prominent than in the western or northern parts, where Dutch and English styles were predominant.
The big centers for the production of south German Baroque furniture were the cities of Wuerzburg, Bamberg, Bayreuth and Ansbach in Franconia and Munich.
