Literature

From the middle of the 18th century, taste was dominated by the classical ideal, based on the observation of Antiquity. In decorative arts, this was characterized by the harmony of proportions based on mathematics and geometry, both present in the shape of furniture pieces and marquetry decorations. The geometric marquetry - rhombuses, stars, cubes, squares, octagonal or circular patterns - marked the Transition and Louis XVI styles. Louis XVI style was particularly appreciated under Napoleon III. The geometrical marquetry that decorates our jewelry box is a perfect example.
