Biedermeier chest of drawers

Four-drawer Biedermeier chests of drawers made of cherry wood were made around 1820. The Biedermeier style was an art and design movement popular primarily in German-speaking countries during the Biedermeier period (c. 1815-1848).

Biedermeier chests of drawers were very popular at this time and were often made with quality craftsmanship. Cherry wood has been widely used to make furniture because of its warm color and beautiful grain. It is a hardwood and is well suited for furniture making.

This typical four-drawer Biedermeier chest of drawers made of cherry wood from around 1820 has four drawers that are arranged one above the other in a symmetrical arrangement. The drawer fronts have a continuous veneer pattern with no carvings, inlays or other decorative elements. Only the key plates are diamond-shaped inlaid in ebonized pear.
