    Pierre Louis Malpass is a parisian porcelain painter, known in the 1870s. His studio was located at 16 rue Pierre Levé in Paris. He also worked in the workshop of Paul Blot (successor of Feuillet) at 3 rue de la Paix in the late 19th century. A porcelain painting after the painting by Jacques-Louis David, "Le Sacre", realized by Malpass is kept to Chateau de Malmaison and Bois-Préau.
    Ormolu -(from French 'or moulu', signifying ground or pounded gold) is an 18th-century English term for applying finely ground, high-caratgoldin amercuryamalgamto an object ofbronze.The mercury is driven off in akilnleaving behind a gold-coloured veneerknown as'gilt bronze'.
    The manufacture of true ormolu employs a process known as mercury-gilding orfire-gilding, in which a solution ofnitrate of mercuryis applied to a piece ofcopper,brass, or bronze, followed by the application of anamalgamof gold and mercury. The item was then exposed to extreme heat until the mercury burned off and the gold remained, adhered to the metal object.
    After around 1830 because legislation had outlawed the use of mercury other techniques were used instead.Electroplatingis the most common modern technique. Ormolu techniques are essentially the same as those used onsilver, to producesilver-gilt.. Ref: 2EDH2TVV7
