    pair of charles x vases in gilded and patinated bronze with gothic patterns

    Pair of ormolu and patinated Gothic vases resting on high rectangular pedestals and on an openwork base. The gilded bronze patterns decorated with Gothic cathedral patterns, arches, garlands of flowers and lobed pattern emerge on a brown-green patina background.


    The "Gothic" taste was the first reaction to the ubiquitous antique style defined by Percier and Fontaine in the early nineteenth century. Everyday objects from the modest to the most luxurious ones known as "cathedral" or "troubadour" as clocks, candlesticks, inkwells and boxes are decorated with various patterns inspired by fenestration, gables columns and fashions evoking the styles of the past. The interiors are characterized then by a nostalgic fascination for the medieval period. This retrospective game applied to the habitat and decorative objects, thanks to the de Berry Duchess, eager to distinguish herself from traditional tastes of the court, announces the great historicized stages of the second half of the century.
