Biedermeier demilune console tableThis demilune console table is a great example of furniture created during the Biedermeier period from 1800’s.  The console’s clean lines are accentuated by the rich wood grain of walnut veneer which adorns this piece of furniture creating an elegant look. The Biedermeier furniture style was popular in the Northern part of Europe and some of the original pieces date back to the early 1800’s.  This style of furniture is generally costly due to the use of veneering, the hand french polish finishing technique utilized, and the high skill needed to create Biedermeier furniture. The presence of the organic curved support is a sign that this design dates from the later part of the Biedermeier period.
