LOUIS XIII ANTIQUE BRASS

The Louis XIII style or Louis Treize was a fashion in French art and architecture, especially effecting the visual and decorative arts. Its distinctness as a period in the history of French art has much to do with the regency under which Louis XIII began his reign (1610–1643). His mother and regent, Marie de' Medici, imported mannerism from her homeland of Italy and the influence of Italian art was to be strongly felt for several decades. This decadent collection of high fashion knobs and pulls will uplift and advance any piece of furniture or cabinet they adorn.
