The history of German antique furniture is very complex involving the different styles of all the independent city states. German antique furniture tends to be very sturdy, made with the best woods from German forests. It was so well made that a good deal of the earliest pieces still survive today.
Antique German furniture follows its own time frame. The basic styles of each period are similar to other countries, but the features are distinctively German.
Renaissance Period -- 1603-1649 Renaissance Baroque Period -- 1649-1694 Baroque Period -- 1694 - 1714 Rococo Period -- 1714-1727 Neo-classical Period -- 1727 - 1780 Biedermeier Period -- 1780 - 1830 Renaissance Revival Period -- 1830 - 1900
Germany as we know it today did not come into existence until 1871. Before then, there were independent regions, and each one had its own distinct style. You can tell where each piece came from because the craftsmen would put the seal of their city on the piece.
GERMAN BURLED WALNUT & OAK CARVED BOOKCASE
THIS NICE WALNUT GERMAN BOOKCASE COMES APART FOR SHIPPING. ADJUSTABLE SHELVES.
This bookcase with 3 glass walnut doors is from 1850's. Purchased in Berlin, Germany and moved to the U.S. in the 1950's. It is an unusual cabinet/bookcase in a classical design. The cabinet has carved black walnut and burled walnut doors in the front of the bookcase. Across the top is a carved crown and on the top corners of the doors is an applied carving (see photos). The front doors has a flat very heavy glass panel. The craftmanship of this cabinet/bookcase is exceptional. All of the locks on the cabinet/bookcase doors are not working (see photos). The cabinet has 8 oak shelves with nice edges. The left side measure 27" and the right side measure 49" (see photos). All shelves measure 12 1/2" deep. As you can see in the close up photos the color & grain of the walnut is really quite exceptional. This is a massive bookcase measuring 93" wide x 75 1/4" High x 16" deep and weighs several hundred pounds.

Is the third largest manufacturer of furniture in the world and German contemporary designs, particularly in upholstered furniture, dominate some markets. Much of the impetus for the modern German furniture industry can be traced back to the early 20th century Bauhaus furniture movement.
