Product Description

Anton Pssenbacher (1842-1920), cabinet-maker to the Bavarian court in Munich, was head of one of the largest late nineteenth-century German makers of luxury furnishings. His furniture designs, especially those for King Ludwig II of Bavaria (1871-1886), represent German Historicism at its zenith. Pssenbacher created almost all the furnishings for the royal apartments at Linderhof, Herrenchiemsee and Neuschwanstein. Intricately carved and lavishly upholstered in gold brocade and dazzling embroidered pictures, these furnishings are highlights in the sumptuous interiors of Bavarian castles. Made to the specifications of an exacting monarch, these masterpieces of the cabinet-maker's craft have lost nothing of their original fascination.

Pssenbacher's clients also included industrialists, merchants
