Louis XVI

Louis XVI

King Louis-Auguste reigned in France between 1774 to 1793. The Louis XVI style was a return to classicism looking to Greek and Roman culture for inspiration. Characteristics of this style were architectural ornamentation, classic symmetry, geometric marquetry,decorative escutcheons, small mechanized elements, and the predominant use of mahogany with linear gilt bronze mounts that emphasized veneers. Decorative motifs such as garland swags, horns of plenty, vasiform shapes, olive leaves, and cone finials were common and often referencing historical styles.

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.

Sconce

Sconce

A wall-mounted bracket light, typically with an upward-facing arm that holds, in antique sconces, an oil lamp or candle, or in modern examples, an electrified light. Antique sconces were used often in corridors or in pairs on both sides of an entryway. They featured a reflective backplate to intensify candlelight while keeping the candle a safe distance from the wall. They are commonly made of metals such as silver, bronze, or ormolu and became very decorative in the 18th Century.
