Furniture in the Henry II style displays the values and aesthetics of the Renaissance, which means rebirth. This rebirth of classical arts and philosophies of ancient Rome and Greece arose in Italy in the 15th century and spread across Europe, influencing architecture and the decorative arts.
Typical decorative details evoked Greek and Roman mythology and architecture, with an emphasis on classical symmetry. Furniture is also adorned with carved arches and columns, stately pediments and attractive finials. Figurative carvings include male and female figures, faces and heads.
Good antique condition, wear and distressing commensurate with age and use, light marking and edge wear, originally were caned.
