Bois dorés

Bois dorés

I  love gilded wood,’bois doré’ especially when time has done its work on it, revealing plaster, greyish wood  . Here is a collection of finials, tie -backs,  ornaments all  or nearly all from 19th century. Notice my paint /patine finish on the console , blackened wood waxed, sanded, rewaxed and buffed.I limed-plastered the walls giving them an uneven surface .
