Neo-classic

Neo-classic

Neo-classic refers to the second revival of classic design for interior decoration in the 18th century. This style was inspired by excavations of Pompeii and Herculaneum that begun in 1738. Common motifs include dolphins, lyres, and urns.

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.

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.

Relief

Relief

Relief work is a form of molded, carved or stamped decoration raised from the surface of a piece of furniture to form a pattern

Filigree

Filigree

Primarily refers to fine, ornate metalwork (mainly in gold, silver, or copper), that is intricately patterned and used as ornamentation or embellishment, particularly in fine jewelry making. More broadly, the term can refer to any ornamental openwork that is delicate or fine that resembles a metal filigree in its pattern, but in other mediums.
