The early 19th-century Biedermeier style marks the transitional period between Neoclassicism and Romanticism.
The “Biedermeier” society, in general, concentrated on the domestic and (at least in public) the non-political.
As a consequence, the emphasis on home life for the growing middle-class meant a blossoming of furniture design and interior decorating.
Biedermeier furniture, like this Biedermeier chest, derives mostly from Austria and Germany.
Stylistically, Biedermeier furniture softened the rigidity of the Empire style.
Consequently, the cabinet makers used light, native woods and avoided the use of metal ornamentation.
Throughout the Biedermeier period, clean lines and minimal ornamentation dominated the design.
The Biedermeier chest comes refinished and French polished and it measures Height: 30.5 in. (77.47 cm), Width: 47 in. (119.38 cm), Depth: 24.8 in. (63 cm).
