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.
After the Thirty Years’ War the German territory of the Holy Roman Empire was divided in multiple small principalities. Each court had a slightly different taste and as a result the German Baroque furniture styles vary from region to region. 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. Additionally the interested noble and clerical clients could go to the biannual sales fair in the city of Frankfurt, where ebeniste or cabinetmakers from various regions and countries were able to present and sell their masterpieces.
