More About Burr Walnut
True burr walnut comes from taking the wood from a rare growth that occurs on walnut trees where literally hundreds of tiny new branches start growing from the main trunk. However, most walnut display the swirling burr figure when cut and polished particularly in the wood taken from where the tree trunk joins the roots. This antique Art Deco dining table shows the swirling figure off to perfection in the tabletop. The figure is particularly brought out by the French polishing.
More About Art Deco
Art Deco started in France between 1910 and 1914, and the early incarnation of the style featured very bright colours and largely floral motifs. It was an eclectic style drawing from a range of sources including the orient, and with the growth of industrialisation and technology it embraced and incorporated features and elements denoting all that was modern. It influenced every area of design throughout the 1920s, 30s, and 40s. Buildings, cars, trains, ocean liners, furniture, fashion, jewellery and all the other decorative arts incorporated its design principles, including everyday objects such as fridges and telephones.
Influenced by Cubism it used geometric forms and angles as well as very bright colours and exotic materials such as ebony. In the 1920s it was associated with elegance, luxury, exuberance and faith in technological and social progress, employing the finest craftsmanship. As the era progressed, and in response to the great depression, the style became more muted with curved surfaces and designers started to use newly invented materials such as stainless steel, chrome plating and bakelite, an early form of plastic. Objects started to be mass produced and often featured highly polished surfaces. The 1930s saw the style take on the curves of aerodynamic ‘bullet’ shapes invented to reduce wind resistance and the bullet shape was used not just in moving objects such as cars and trains but also in buildings, furniture and other decorative objects. The style faded after the second world war.
