  • Gilt Bronze Ormolu - What is it?

    Many of our styles employ Gilt Bronze or brass Ormolu. Ormolu was first produced in France in mid-17th Century. During the reign of The Sun King, Louis XIV, Gilt Bronze Ormolu Mounts were used in abundance. Opulence was the order of the day and porcelain wares were En Vogue.

    Gilt Brass Ormolu, Gilt Bronze Ormolu or “Doré Bronze“ as is commonly referred to, is used today in the same manner - as fashionable decorative embellishments - the mark of fine quality craftsmanship. These embellishments were traditionally reserved for only the costliest Chinese & European wares and the finest European furnishings.

                                                              Tomorrow's Antiques... Today!

    Originally the Doré Gilding Technique was that of applying Genuine Gold to decorative metals especially of Cast Brass, Copper or Bronze. The metal object was then coated with an amalgam consisting of High Karat gold and mercury. The mercury portion of the coating was then burnt off in a Kiln, leaving behind a gleaming Gold coating.

    Unfortunately, Due to Mercury exposure, the average life span of the Gilder was about 40 years. In 1830, French Legislators in Europe outlawed the use of Mercury amalgam altogether: although in 1900 it was still commonly employed and the practice was still in use up till 1960 in a handful of Studios.
