Biedermeier Period Cherrywood Three Drawer Chest, Augsburg, Germany circa 1820
Biedermeier Period Cherrywood Three Drawer Chest, Augsburg, Germany c.1820. The superb simplicity of this chest of drawers distills the essence of design that flourished during the Biedermeier period in Germany and Austria. The major emphasis here is of course on the elegance of the matched pattern seen in the grain of the cherrywood timber that has been placed across the entire façade to create an unbroken cascade of movement. The sides of the chest also feature beautifully patterned cherrywood chosen to complement the front so from every direction the chest is visually appealing. There are some subtle touches in the cabinetry that add to the distinctive nature of this chest of drawers. The entire perimetre of the top edge is faced with a narrow ribbon of ebonized wood and this darkest black colour defines and adds contrast to the cherrywood in a decisive manner. The two front corners are set at a forty five degree angle and the profile of the top of the chest also follows this angled cut as do the front two tapered legs. The slight change in direction at the corners adds a sense of lightness to the overall impression of the chest. All three drawers open fully to maximize the storage capacity and the locks have a key. There is a very similar chest featured in the reference book "Biedermeier-Mobel" published in 2006 by Professor Rainer Haaff, page 51.
