Main article: Ornaments

Ornaments are a type of Furniture for your Residence that are for decoration only. Ornaments not only serve to make your home look less boring, but many can be displayed in the Louvre in Paris as well. Putting an Ornament on display in the Louvre will give you a certain amount of Cultural Contribution each day that it is on display. Your exhibition will only last one week however so after a week you must go back and retrieve it and re-enter it for display for another week. For an Ornament to be acceptable for display at the Louvre it cannot be from Europe, so Ornaments like Stonehenge will not work. You will have to come up with an Ornament from a more distant adventure. Africa or the Middle East at the very least.

Many kinds of Ornaments can be made by submitting a Discovery to a Craftsman in town.

Some ornaments can only be obtained from special in-game events.

Ornament crafting isn't really a specific trade skill, but rather an NPC crafting skill that relies on Adventure skills. Ornament creation starts with the local Craftsman or Sculptor when you request to "Commission Ornament" from him. This in turn requires the proper Discovery Card in order for the Craftsman to start the commission.

Once you request the commission, the Craftsman will require a substantial money deposit as well as the corresponding Discovery Card, which is removed from your inventory (the discovery, however, does not disappear). Physical Discovery Cards are required,
i.e., Statues or Wildlife. Port or Geographical discoveries are not valid.

There are specific Discovery Cards that only a specific Craftsman will work on. For example, Marseille is the only port that will make a Statue of Bastet ornament (Egyptian Cat Goddess) even though several craftsmen have been found that will make some unspecified ornament.
