Antique furniture & furniture collecting; Decorative wood & metalwork
The very first comprehensive work on Louis-Philippe furniture, this book surveys the most important furniture types, stylistic features, woods, mounts and fittings and cloth upholstery. It establishes definitive diagnostic criteria for precisely distinguishing between the commonly used terms 'Second Rococo/Rococo Revival' and 'Louis-Philippe'. During the years between 1850 and 1870 furniture was made throughout Europe, which borrowed stylistically from Rococo forms. Between the Biedermeier era and the subsequent period, during which industrialism took hold in Germany, the Louis-Philippe style (named after the king who headed the middle-class against the rsetored French monarchy to found the July Monarchy) developed a formal idiom distinctively its own within Historicism. The onset of industrial production and economically driven modifications of the court style led to the making of furniture the middle classes could afford.
