  4. 4. Ormolu : What is it? 1. Also called mosaic gold. an alloy of copper and zinc used to imitate gold. 2. Also called bronze doré, gilt bronze. gilded metal, especially cast brass or bronze gilded over fire with an amalgam of gold and mercury, used for furniture mounts and ornamental objects. 3. gold or gold powder prepared for use in gilding. Origin: 1755–65; < French or moulu ground gold, equivalent to or (< Latin aurum ) + moulu, past participle of moudre to grind < Latin molere ---------------------- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ormolu
  5. 5. Ormolu : History of Ormolu Ormolu is the process of applying finely ground gold to a bronze, brass or copper object, using mercury. The process first came to prominence in France, with 18th century pieces particularly sought after by collectors today. Mercury was banned in France in 1830 and new techniques took over, evolving into the process we know today as electro-plating. Ormolu is most commonly seen on decorative items such as tables, clocks and vases.

  101. 101. Ormolu : Hypothesis At present, we do not know what firm manufactured the ormolu mounts used on Phoenix & Consolidated glass. Could it be that Consolidated only started to use ormolu after 1932 as there is no Ruba Rombic in ormolu? Therefore, could Ormolu have started with Phoenix when they had the Reuben Line molds and then continued by Consolidated? The one piece of Catalonian is a ruby-stained vase which was probably done after the return of the molds to Consolidated. What do YOU think?? 12. 14.
