Style notes — Georgian period mainly refers to the second half of the 18th century and up to the 1820s. The style was predominantly neo-classical, that looked back at the ancient Greece and Rome and used those elements in design and decoration. Most Georgian items have straight and very clean lines and elegant repetitive floral patterns.

Facts of Lavish “Champagne is the only wine that leaves a woman beautiful after drinking it” — said Madame de Pompadour, as the story goes. We may add — in moderation.
