Restorers and natural scientists from Germany, England, the USA, and the Netherlands describe in 14 case studies current results for the exploration of the original blaze of colour of historic furnitures and wooden equipment. Themes are changing of colours on stained and coloured wood of intarsia, as well as colouring matters and charts of colour range of the great European cabinetmakers of the 18th century (Oeben, Riesener, Chippendale, Spindler, and Roentgen).
