Wall cabinet, Franz Xaver Fortner, 1844

oak (wood), h c.72.5cm × w c.46.5cm More details

Various stylistic periods are here combined in a single piece of furniture. The inlay technique combining wood with metal revives the technique known as boullework, named after the renowned 17th-century French cabinetmaker André Charles Boulle, while the motifs – cuirasses, lances and banners – reflect the 19th-century’s enthusiasm for the Middle Ages.
