Louis XV

Louis XV

Also known as Louis Quinze, was a style popularized by King Louis XV of France. The Sun King reigned in France between 1715 and 1774. The furniture style from this period is similar to Rococo with soft, flowing lines, shell and flower ornamentation, S-curves, rich padded upholstery, rare wood veneers, inlaying and painted furniture.

Bronze doré

Bronze doré

A French 18th and 19th Century gilding technique of applying an amalgam of fine, high-carat gold with mercury to copper, brass, or most commonly bronze objects. The bronze is exposed to high heat in a kiln burning off the mercury leaving a thin gold coat behind that is adhered to the metal. Commonly used by the craftsmen, Fondeurs-ciseleurs (founders and finishers), for decorative mounts in furniture, clocks, candelabras, and porcelain. Due to the health hazards of mercury, the technique waned into the late 19th Century and was replaced by electroplating.

Pediment

Pediment

An architectural feature that has a triangular ornament placed on top of a structure such as a a portico, doorway, window or used as a decorative element in furniture. There are many variations on the pediment some have segmental, scroll, and broken forms.
