This style was named after the “Bürgerkönig” Louis-Philippe (1830-1848). It developed between 1830 and 1860. It is marked by a revival of Gothic and particularly Louis-quinze shapes. In France, it was the beginning of historicism. It is distinctive for the “Louis-Philippe” style that all-encompassing curves dominate. The contours flow into all directions, without any edges obstructing them. There are many strikingly embellished, playful shapes.
~ 1830 - 1860
