  • Stock: 15737

    A German Neo-Gothic oak armchair attributed to Edwin Oppler (1831-1880). The chair bears the inscription 'Ernst is das leben, heiter die kunst', or 'Life is Serious, Art is Cheerful' on wonderfully carved banners unfurling amongst Gothic tracery. The motto is taken from Friedrich Schiller's Wallenstein Trilogy of 1800. The chair is beautifully carved and the letter G is inscribed within a shield on the top rail. It has been suggested that this is to indicate George V, son of Ernst August the last King of Hanover.

    German, c.1850. Later upholstery.

    Edwin Oppler was a well-regarded German Jewish Architect, and a proponent of the Neo-Gothic style. He came to know the Gothic style when he worked on the restoration of Notre Dame in Paris. His style then evolved to encompass what had so inspired him in this great Gothic masterpiece. His connection with George V arose when he took over the project of Schloss Marienburg from Conrad Wilhelm Hase in 1864, where he also designs furniture that shares many characteristics with this chair.
    In his career, he went on to design many synagogues, all of which were tragically destroyed during Kristallnacht.

  • Stock: 15555

    A pair of late Victorian display cabinets, ebonised and chequer inlaid with amboyna and purplewood, in the Aesthetic Movement style. Each cabinet has running gilt brass mounts, a baluster gallery above a pair of glazed doors enclosing two adjustable shelves, over a bevelled mirror inset back panel and ring turned front columns, with a chevron inlaid frieze below, above a pair of glazed doors enclosing two shelves each.

    Provenance:
    By family repute the cabinets were made by the great grandfather of the previous owner. His surname was Savigear and evidently he executed them whilst he was working for the Soho based cabinet making firm of Frauer and Sons, most likely during the 1890s. Frederick Frauer appears listed as a cabinet maker located on 46 Greek Street, Soho, in the Dictionary of British and Irish Furniture Makers, 1500-1914.

Antique furniture
Antique furniture is almost infinite in its variety. From the most humble of beginnings, furniture characterises its period, taking on the influences of the age.

For example, Victorian furniture represents the 19th century British interest in earlier periods, and the style of the furniture reflects the age’s influences, such as the Gothic, Renaissance and Jacobean eras. Antique oak furniture has endured the centuries, and remains very popular, especially in period, or country residences. Victorian furniture made of oak often emulated the 16th and 17th century style of fine furniture, to decorate the 19th century home in a revival style.

Antique French furniture
Antique French furniture also offers a large variety of styles, from the understated farmhouse style, where fruitwoods are simply carved and joined into tables, chairs and beds. Fine antique French furniture utilised the beauty of more exotic woods, such as mahogany, rosewood and kingwood and paired it with the gleaming ormolu mounts often seen on the opulent Louis XV furniture of the 18th century and later revivals. The later French Empire style was more neoclassical, and became sought after all over Europe.

Antique bedroom furniture
Antique bedroom furniture is an often overlooked area, but such a room can be transformed by the addition of period pieces. Whether antique beds to make a statement, or a pair of elegant and understated antique chairs, these details add character and depth. Antique bedroom furniture could also feature antique screens, an excellent way of creating a partition in a room for a dressing area or even a bath.

Antique tables and chairs
In a principal room, there are a few essential pieces of antique furniture that give the interior character. An antique table is an incredibly versatile antique, whether the smallest occasional table, or a grand antique dining table surrounded by a set of 19th century dining chairs. An antique chair is also a lovely way of introducing an antique, as they can be easily incorporated by upholstering them to suit the scheme of the room.
