Ormolu

Or-moulu is ormolu, or translated "Ground or pounded gold". It is an 18th century English term for applying finely ground, high carat gold in a mercury amalgam to an object of bronze. The mercury is driven off in a kiln, leaving behind a gold veneer known as gilt bronze. Not allowed to do it any longer due to the dangers of mercury. So protect your gilt ormolu!
