Louis XV

The style Louis XV succeeds Regency, which is a draft by the progressive abandonment of the traditional inspiration which prevailed since the Renaissance.

The Louis XV style is tempted by the baroque. It is an inventive style.
For the first time since the Middle Ages, asymmetry reappears. The famous little Louis XV commodes are often unbalanced, but always balanced; the result is a fancy feeling, unable to say why at first glance.
Just like in this collection, the umbilicus (bottom) is round, wide and flat, slightly sloping edges are rather short, edged with a raised rim whose uneven progress sometimes seems improvised.
This simple and delicate collection marries the old dishes, or very contemporary without losing its beauty
