​​Gilding is the art of applying gold or silver to a surface and 
was used by the ancients as far back as the Egyptians. In our 
studio we use the same traditional methods and materials to 
accurately duplicate the look and feel of an antique original. 
While most of our work is done on clocks we also work on period 
frames and mirrors. Our expert gilder, Cynthia Smith would be glad to discuss your restoration project. Please call or e-mail for more information.​
