Literature. The Rococo style originated in France in the 1730s, its name coming from the word “rocaille”, which is the reference for the broken shell or rock motifs found on the majority of Rococo pieces. The style soon spread to other parts of Europe and came to influence the other arts, particularly sculpture, furniture, silverware and glassware, painting, music, and theatre. Rococo is a wonderfully ornate style, the most common decorations include the acanthus leaf, frilly rocaille and curved scrolls, highly stylised and often fantastical in nature. Rococo pieces are typically asymmetrical, allowing the imagination of the designer to run free.
The wall lights are in good condition with no wear to the silver plate. The mirror is in good condition. The girandoles are made in pieces and assembled from the back with screws, some screws are replacements.
