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.

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.

Cornucopia

Cornucopia

A cornucopia is a decorative motif that dates back to ancient Greece. The cornucopia is a symbol of fertility and abundance. The motif originated in the shape of a curved goat’s horn that is filled or overflowing with fruits, grains, and flowers. The cornucopia motif was especially popular during the Baroque and Rococo periods. The cornucopia is also referred to as a Horn Of Plenty.

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.
