Antique Biedermeier Burl Walnut German Chest of Drawers circa 1830

A handsome antique German Biedermeier burl walnut chest of drawers circa 1830. The sheer beauty of the book matched walnut seen on the front of this Biedermeier period chest is magnificent. During this period the emphasis of cabinet making relied on the exceptional beauty of the material itself as opposed to the carved decoration seen in earlier times. The precision of the matched burl walnut panels is astonishing given the time period of the early nineteenth century and amply demonstrates the superb level of craftsmanship available in Germany. Please be sure to enlarge the photographs to see not only the façade but also the gotgeous walnut timber used on the top as well as the sides. In addition notice the elegant rounded corners of the top repeated along the front corners flanking the drawers and even along the front corners of the legs. A true attention to detail and emblematic of the superior sense of proportion and scale in the Biedermeier period.
