In fine Victorian era homes a ‘Parlour Dome’ would take pride of place, and they housed all sorts of oddities & treasures. The Heritage Crafts Assoc. U.K. lists ‘parlour domes’ on its Red List of endangered crafts. In ballet terms, arabesque is the term describing a dancer poised on one leg, the other leg held straight out behind.
