As splendid as the eighteenth century stuff is, it’s as well to remember that they replaced stone and precious metals with marble, scagliola and plaster…It’s a moot point really, since the Revolution would have swept all the old stuff away anyway.

True. But, hardly grounds for privating it or replacing it with worthless junk even farther removed from stone and presious metals, or, as the case here is, simply divesting it of its ornament for no purpose or reason.
