Condition
Condition: GOOD
In overall good condition. Antique and vintage items by their very nature show normal wear to finish and miscellaneous scratches, nicks, and dings due to age and use. As we define 'good condition' relative to the stated age of the piece, we would expect to see 'character marks' consistent with that age and could include nicks or dings to a wooden, metal, enamel, or chalkware object, wear to a painted surface, speckling on a mirror, crazing, wear to gilding, or manufacturing glaze skips in ceramic finish, wear to a label, and some original decorative trim may be missing. If ceramic/porcelain restoration has been done, it is of museum-quality so that it is hardly discernible and would be specifically mentioned in the listing. 'Good condition' could include very small fleabite chips or very small hairline cracks in any glass, ceramic, or marble item, but these would be specifically mentioned in the listing.
Item Specifics: Shows normal wear to the finish including surface rust spots on metal and miscellaneous nicks, dings, and scratches due to age and use. The glass pendants have been replaced.

Style: Rococo LOUIS XV AND THE ROCOCO REVIVAL STYLE
The nephew of Napoleon, Napoleon III (1852 e 1870), Emperor of the Second Empire, has the unusual distinction of being both the last monarch of France and the first President of the French Republic. Napoleon III married the beautiful Spanish Countess, Eugenie de Montijo, whose aristocratic extravagance in dress and jewels reflected her ornate personal taste in furniture and decorative arts, and influenced French furniture makers to reach back to the designs from the glorious court of Louis XV (1715 e 1774) at Versailles for inspiration, creating the Rococo Revival style.
The extreme level of exuberant extravagance that blossomed under the reign of Louis XV and his favorite mistress, Madame du Pompadour, is known as the Rococo style. The word Rococo is thought to be a combination of the French rocaille, or shell, and the Italian barocco, or Baroque style. The rounded extravagance of the Rococo Revival style, enormously popular in the 19th century, was based on the original 18th century style. Hallmarks of this style, also known as the Louis XV style, include detailed carvings of birds, flowers (especially roses) and leaves, fruit, and shells. Furniture overflowed with massive carvings and grandiose S and C curves. The cabriole leg, which means a knee leg with concave rounded ankle, was very popular and is also a trademark of the Louis XV style. Rosewood and walnut were popularly used in the Rococo Revival style, along with a great interest in white marble for vanities, nightstands, and parlor tables.
As the middle class rose in status and wealth with the advent of the Industrial Revolution in the 19th century, more people were able to afford furniture. This flattening of society in combination with technological advancements created a surge of furniture production. Improved transportation meant a greater variety of wood was available at lower costs. For the first time, furniture became accessible and affordable to the common man. From the 1830s to the end of the 19th century, furniture makers reached back to earlier historical styles, and reinterpreted them with a great deal of creativity and experimentation. Although machines were used to increase speed and productivity, most of the carvings were still done by hand. As furniture began to be created cooperatively in workshops, the practice of signing pieces (required by law from 1743 to 1789) was not as prevalent. Most French pieces from the 19th century do not have makeres marks or signatures.
