The main features are the soft, almost fluid shapes in conjunction with are usually made of solid walnut carved, very plastic-looking Huffüßen. Also the extremely quality flowers inlaid to show the skill of the Neuwieder manufactory which are reached with this type of Furniture at the height of their Rococo furniture.
Characteristic of the Roentgen manufactory is that most of them made furniture can be dismantled. The corner unit consists of the base and a seated body. This was due to the fact that the majority of in Neuwied-made furniture had to be transported over long distances and, accordingly, in dedicated transport boxes were Packed. So, it is clear from a directory of employees, craftsmen of 1779, that in Roentgens workshop, a master with two journeymen built exclusively to transport boxes
