Shortly before 1720, in the rich town and country houses, a very flamboyant style of gilded furniture, still suggestive of foreign taste, became fashionable. Certain characteristics of this type existed during the reigns of Charles II and James II, but the development of gilded furniture which took place through the 18th century, is a very distinctive feature of this time. Reception rooms were furnished with gilded console tables, sofas, chairs and card tables. You will see similar designs portrayed in miniature in the gilt pieces shown in this range. Our miniature gilt furniture, mirrors and frames have been gold plated by using the electro-plating method.The gold used is 22 carat gold, and gives a very luxurious and distinctive finish. Sometimes the gilt finish is very bright, and other times is a little more subdued, but is always gold, and not a paint. This was taken from John Hodgsons website page, which we encourage you to visit! The 22 kt pieces are no longer being made so this is one of the last treasures in this finish and this incredible miniature piece that is highly desired by discerning collectors comes from an extensive estate curated over two generations beginning with a miniaturist of some notoriety, Stuart Albert Parvin, born in 1904, who was a minister as well as a highly gifted miniaturist who later created the The House of Stuart by which his miniature work was known.
