Matching his words to his work, Sheraton designed much mahogany furniture. The qualities that impressed Sheraton are particularly evident in a distinctive pattern of wood called flame mahogany. The flame figure in the wood is revealed by slicing through the face of the branch at the point where it joins another element of the tree. Ormolu (from French'or moulu', signifying ground or pounded gold) is an 18th-century English term for applying finely ground, high-carat gold.
To an object of bronze. The mercury is driven off in a kiln. Leaving behind a gold-coloured veneer known as'gilt bronze'. The manufacture of true ormolu employs a process known as mercury-gilding or fire-gilding. In which a solution of nitrate of mercury.
Is applied to a piece of copper. Or bronze, followed by the application of an amalgam. The item was then exposed to extreme heat until the mercury burned off and the gold remained, adhered to the metal object.
No true ormolu was produced in France after around 1830 because legislation had outlawed the use of mercury. Therefore, other techniques were used instead but nothing surpasses the original mercury-firing ormolu method for sheer beauty and richness of colour. Is the most common modern technique.
Ormolu techniques are essentially the same as those used on silver. Take a tour of our London showrooms. Take Piccadilly line to Manor House station. Go to top of escalators and turn left. Take exit 7 and walk straight on for 10 metres.
