The "Crowned C" The bronzes of some Louis XV furniture bear a hallmark of the letter C surmounted by a crown that has long intrigued the specialists. We now know that this hallmark sanctions a tax paid between 1745 and 1749 on bronzes and brass. The 1745 edict required that "old and new works (...) that are and will be made, be visited and marked". The same text enumerates all works "of pure copper, of cast iron, cast, beaten, glued, engraved, gilded, silvered and colored, without any exception" which were to receive the mark.
