The Historicism in Europe developed on one hand during the reign of Louis Philippe in France but this new style also had an influence on the European neighbors. In Germany and Austria this period started since the 1840s. It is not precisely dated, but in Austria, the March Revolution of 1848 is generally accepted as the beginning of economic changes connected to the emerging industrialization. The furniture style during Historicism draws from earlier design epochs. The plain lines of the German and Austrian Biedermeier style changed to a more playful design.
The twisted legs of our table are for example a typical feature of this new style.
