Objets d’art is a French term that can be translated to mean “art objects.” It is usually taken to mean high-quality 3D objects that are generally small in size and relate to decorative items with a high-quality finish and have artistic value. The term is broad and refers to everything that falls outside the major artistic categories of large paintings, prints, sculptures and drawings. A close examination of these objects will indicate a history, at the outset they generally had a particular purpose.
The National Maritime Museum in London owns an extensive objets d’art collection and have described the round up as “small decorative art items that fall outside the scope of the Museum’s ceramic, plate, textiles and glass collection”. The Louvre Museum in Paris also boasts an extensive collection of decidedly valuable objets d’art, this collection encompasses stained glass, vases and ceramics some, of which date back to the middle ages.
The type of objects collectively termed objets d’art appeal to art collectors and those involved in the marketing of antiques. A collection can include everything from tapestries, jewellery, tobacco boxes, miniature paintings, vases, bowls, urns and ceramic plaques to cosmetic boxes, fans, decorative boxes, metalwork items, antiques, Fabergé eggs and selected books with beautiful bindings. Essentially the term objets d’art covers everything which is not categorised into the major artistic groupings.
Space Energy sources these treasures from colourful places like Côte d’Ivoire, France, New York, South Africa and The Republic of Benin. We endeavour to showcase the highest quality and rarest of collector’s items, to give your space the luxurious and elegant feel distinctly synonymous of Space Energy. Our attention to detail adds a timeless sense of style and universal appeal to any space with which we work.
