Regency Cremone Bolt
We can say that the French Rengency style, (Regence), began in the last part of Louis the XIV reign with a lighter decoration. The French Regency represents the transitional period between the reign of Louis the XIV and that of Louis the XV.
The use of the shell (called Coquille ), big flower arrangements and fabulous animals like dragons are the most characteristic of this time. Symmetry starts to disappear opening the way to curvilinear shapes that make the composition flow freely.
