Gold gilding restoration

We offer a specialist gold gilding restoration service of gilt picture frames and furniture. We use traditional methods and materials and work to retain the authenticity of the piece wherever possible.

We aim to consolidate as many loose pieces as we can and carefully clean the item if required. Sometimes old repairs, which have involved using paint and not gold, will need attention as they can detract from the overall look. We can also replace missing sections using traditional materials.

Finally, once the gold leaf has been applied, we can tone and distress the new gold to match the colour of the surrounding original leaf. Please click on the Video Clip page to see recent gilding work undertaken by us.
