Ormolu / Gilt Bronze -  (from French 'or moulu', signifying ground or pounded gold) 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-colored veneer known as 'gilt bronze'.

The manufacture of true ormolu employs a process known as mercury-gilding or  fire-gilding , in which a solution of  nitrate of mercury  is applied to a piece of  copperbrass , or bronze, followed by the application of an  amalgam  of gold and mercury . The item was then exposed to extreme heat until the mercury burned off and the gold remained, adhered to the metal object.

After around 1830 because legislation had outlawed the use of mercury other techniques were used instead. Electroplating  is the most common modern technique. Ormolu techniques are essentially the same as those used on  silver , to produce  silver-gilt. .
