Description

Napoleon III chandelier with eighteen lights arranged in a double order, France, third quarter of the 19th century. Structure in gilded bronze, characterized in the central shaft by the presence of parts in green glazed ceramic; the golden bronze is characterized by the alternation of highlighted portions with opaque portions, thus creating reflections that amplify its brightness. On a decorative level, eclecticism dominates, finding both elements of clear rococo taste, particularly in the moving structure composed of curls, leafy volutes and ornamental motifs with a calligraphic character, and elements derived from the classical world, such as floral festoons, rosettes, capitals and masks. At the apex, placed on a bed of sloping leaves, a pineapple. Bobeches in cut crystal, one of which has been replaced and others are broken. It has defects in the gilding.

Additional Information

Style: Napoleon III (1848-1870)

With Napoleon III as emperor, France experienced a period of extraordinary economic prosperity, a factor that allowed it to reconstitute a formidable war machine.
In short, we relive the dream that already belonged to Bonaparte: France, a great European hegemonic power.
Euphoria and grandeur find perfect correspondence also in the furnishings that characterized the Second Empire.
In Italy, the Napoleon III style had initially insignificant effects, imposing furnishings of imitation Louis XVI with an ornamental value only resolved in carving and completely devoid of bronze trappings, in compliance with a more sober taste that will always characterize the Italian client.
Only in the first decades of the twentieth century did "French" furniture find important commercial outlets in our country.
This is the name of the artistic production of France under Napoleon III, president in 1848 and emperor from 1852 to 1870, the year of his abdication.
More than a style, we can speak of a set of styles, or rather of revivals, given that in recent years the eclectic trend that had already appeared during the previous Louis Philippe reign developed to its extreme consequences.
The drive to re-evaluate history and the Middle Ages also derives from the romantic spirit, as well as from the nationalistic one.
The houses are then decorated mixing different styles and drawing from both the past and the East, with a trend towards luxury and pomp that reflects the emperor's desire for grandeur.
In general there is a return to the whole of the eighteenth century, with particular attention to Louis XVI, the fashion for dark woods (ebony and rosewood), exotic ones and bronze applications is confirmed.
From the seventeenth century the inlay created by André-Charles Boulle, the great cabinetmaker of Louis XIV who created an inlay technique in gilded bronze and tortoiseshell, is recovered, in which one of the two materials acts as a background for the perforated designs of the other. < br/> Compared to the refinement of the original pieces, the "Boulle" furniture of this period is heavier and even more eye-catching, given the addition of bright colors through painted foils or parts in blue, red or green colored horn.
Always in the wake of eclecticism, Venetian furniture arouses particular interest, which stimulates the production of polychrome and gilded furniture, in which figures of Moretti often appear as a support.
The latter are also to be connected to the passion for the exotic that leads to the fashion of chinoiserie (especially after the conquest of Beijing in 1860).
