This plate set is done in the Louis XVI style c. 1774-1789. The style really began in the second part of the reign of Louis XV and expanded over the entire reign of Louis XVI. The use of the ribbon and reed elements can be traced to the Greek ruins of Pompeii, brought to France from Greek archaeological sites around 1760. This classic design really comes alive in the Antique Brass and Venetian Bronze finishes. All BRASS Accents finishes are hand-rubbed and assembled in USA. Flat surface of plate is 1-3/4" x 10-3/8".
