MADAME DE POMPADOUR’S COFFEE GRINDER

Last week I went to Le Louvre to visit the new installation of  the Department of Decorative Art from Louis XIV to Louis XVI.
Three main chronological and stylistic sequences make up the exhibition. So perfect to have an overview and to clear your mind between French Kings.
– 1660-1725: Louis XIV’s personal reign and the Régence
– 1725-55: development of the Rococo style
– 1755-90: return to Classicism and the reign of Louis XVI.

I found this coffee grinder in the middle of a thousand exhibits.
