Victorian

Victorian

Period in English furniture during the reign of Queen Victoria 1837-1901. Consists of a resurrection of many previous periods and revival imitations including: Gothic, Tudor, Elizabethan, Rococo, and Neoclassic style. This period had a focus on dark woods, heavy fabrics, embellishment, engagement with newly developed imitation materials that were facilitated by the Industrial Revolution, and a tendency towards eclecticism.

Candelabra

Candelabra

An ornate candle holder or lamp stand with a central stem and multiple branches for more than one candle or light. Candelabra can be made from a variety of materials, but are often made from a metal or ceramic.

Finial

Finial

An ornamental, terminating piece that extends vertically from the apex of a design. In architecture, they are found at the tips of gables or spires, and in furniture, as top ornaments on cabinet corners, posts, or supports. Finial also refers to the decorative metal piece used to affix lampshades to table and floor lamps. They often take the shape of a ball, flame, flower, acorn, pineapple, or vase.

Ormolu

Ormolu

French gilding technique of applying finely ground gold with a mercury amalgam to an object of bronze. High heat is applied in a kiln burning off the mercury and leaving behind the gold affixed to the bronze and is finished by hand-chasing. Also known as gilt-bronze or bronze doré. Often used to refer to bronze furniture mounts enhanced by gilding.

Empire

Empire

A period of design during the reign of Napoleon I. It was most prevalent between 1800 and the late 1820s. It was considered the second wave of neoclassicism and marked a return to ostentatious design, a departure from the more conservative Directoire period that directly preceded it. It was intended to idealize the majesty of the French state and Napoleonic rule. Mahogany was the most popular wood during the period, and brass ornamentation and dark marbles were in vogue. Greek, Roman, and Egyptian motifs were also widely used. The style spread throughout Europe and appeared in America in some of Duncan Phyfe's work.
