Around 1900, in the 'French Style.'
French Style was a revival of styles that had been fashionable in France between 1660 and 1790. This taste was fuelled by the arrival in Britain of art dispersed after the French Revolution of 1789. The French Style represented luxury and glamour and was the most popular commercial style in Britain from about 1835 to 1880.
