Original Biedermeier Table, Germany 1820
This classic original Biedermeier table dates back to around 1820 and comes from southern Germany. It stands out for its gorgeous piecrust walnut veneer on the top. The hexagonal foot, decorated with a walnut root veneer, stands on a trefoil base which is also embellished with walnut veneer. This table works very well as a dining table for 4-6 chairs, or it could be the showpiece in your entryway.
This is a beautiful example of the typical Biedermeier style features: strict and plain design with a focus on the beauty of wood veneers.
Biedermeier is the furniture style of the middle class that emerged during the Industrial Revolution. An active rejection of the lavish, highly ornate, and expensively decorative furniture styles of the aristocratic 18th century, Biedermeier finds beauty in simplicity.
Biedermeier has a practical, utilitarian core that celebrates simplicity. The natural grain of the wood used in veneer and construction plays a major role in decoration. No gold embellishments needed.
The table measures Height: 29.93 in. (76 cm), Diameter: 45.67 in. (116 cm) and comes refinished. The table ships from Germany and includes shipping costs and customs to Boston.
