This resplendent French mirrored plateau showcases absolutely superb bronze work. Delicate piercing and chased details abound in this Neoclassical-style dining fixture, accentuated by classical maidens, grapevines and floral bouquets. Measuring just over eight feet in length when fully assembled, the five sections can be arranged to customize the length to suit your needs. A truly fine Empire specimen to add grandeur to a dining room table or a foyer sideboard.

Due to the expense and scarcity of gold and silver, French artisans developed the process of gilding bronze, a more malleable metal, for decorative purposes. The final product became known as ormolu (or, gold and moulu, ground) and objects adorned with gilded bronze influenced decorative tastes across the European continent.

Circa 1810
