This blackened wood frame is superbly decorated with brass motifs. At the time, this kind of frame with domed glass was used to keep family memories (medals, locks of hair, etc.) or religious artefacts.
I decorated this one with a black velvet background and a bouquet.
Late 19th century
Style: Napoleon III
Nephew of Napoleon I, Louis-Napoleon Bonaparte was elected President of the Second Republic in 1848 before becoming Emperor Napoleon III in 1852 following a coup d'etat.
Napoleon III style is one of the most interesting even if nothing is really novel with elements borrowed from preceding styles. Based on the taste of the period, Japanese, Chinese and Oriental art brings a richness, abundance and eclecticism specific to this period.
