They were poduced in workshops in England, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Austria, Russia or Spain and date from the Renaissance to the late nineteenth century. A number of them belonges to such important historical figures as Pope Urban VIII, Louis XIV and Napoleon. The selection includes chairs, tables, beds, and sofas, bookcases and standing shelves, desks, chests, mirrors, frames, showcases and more. The makers of most of the pieces can be identified by a label, documentation, or designer-craftsman, such as André-Charles Boulle, Thomas Chippendale, David Roentgen, or Karl Friedrich Schinkel, but some of the objects are from unknown makers.
