About our work

Gilding

The Art of Gilding dates back to Ancient Egypt.  The Georgian craftsman perfected the art if gilding to be used as decoration on many of their fine pieces of furnishings.  When the tomb of Tutankhamen was exhumed, it was found that the Georgian method of gilding is exactly the same as the method used in Tutankhamen’s period.  English Georgian continues to use the same methods.

We mix our own Gesso to produce the correct consistency of powder and size and use Armenian Earth Clay to produce the Bole.  Even the gold we use is the finest available, 23.5ct, hand beaten in England bearing the Royal seal.  All these factors coupled with the experience gained over many years ensures that our clients get the finest possible products.

Finishes
We illustrate the majority of our products in a traditional finish, whether it be Water gilded, Polished, Painted in our aged stone finish or ebonised.  However, we are aware that not all environments are suited to these traditional finishes. We offer a bespoke finishing service for these requirements, which allows you to choose the best finish for your piece or project.

Our gilded mirrors and pieces of furniture in the catalogue are shown in our standard gilt finish, but alternatively, can be gilded to any level of aging and distressing, to match our clients own specifications.  We can also provide metalized finishes to simulate mediums such as Copper, Bronze and other alloys.  A mixture of mediums can give our pieces a more relaxed feel and often a more contemporary nature.

Having worked with many designers throughout the world, supplying both residential and commercial properties, we've proven to be a leader in custom production. Contact us to see what we can do for you.
