what is palais royale ormolu?

Gilt bronze objects sold in the Palais Royal, Paris? --Wetman 19:56, 24 October 2006 (UTC)

Does it imply a specific technique?

I'm unfamiliar with this term, "palais royale ormolu" but the traditional technique in all French gilding of brass/bronze during the C18 and C19 was that of mercury gilding, now banned. --Wetman 20:10, 26 October 2006 (UTC)
