Early 19th Century Empire Flame Mahogany and Black Marble French Secretaire

About

Wonderful French empire secretaire, early 19th century. Flame mahogany, Belgian black marble, leather, bronze details, with two working keys and two secret drawers. Secretaire of excellent quality, made of mahogany wood adorned with bronze, with a beautiful slab of Belgian black marble. It has two secret side drawers, a leather base with a gold-colored frame. Ideal for a writing desk with drawers in a bedroom. The Empire style is an early-nineteenth-century design movement in architecture, furniture, other decorative arts, and the visual arts, representing the second phase of Neoclassicism. It flourished between 1800 and 1815 during the Consulate and the First French Empire periods, although its life span lasted until the late-1820s. From France it spread into much of Europe and the United States. The style originated in and takes its name from the rule of the Emperor Napoleon I in the First French Empire, when it was intended to idealize Napoleon's leadership and the French state. The previous fashionable style in France had been the Directoire style, a more austere and minimalist form of neoclassicism, that replaced the Louis XVI style. The Empire style brought a full return to ostentatious richness. The style corresponds somewhat to the Biedermeier style in the German-speaking lands, Federal style in the United States, and the Regency style in Britain.
