Along with our Antiqued Mirror our Verre Eglomise finishes can all be applied to toughened glass to make them suitable for use as splash backs, even behind a heat source such as an AGA. The leaves of gold, silver or copper are applied to the reverse side of the glass so the face is as easy to care for as any glass or mirror.
Taxidermy artist Paul Broomfield creates his magical assemblage boxes lined with original 18th & 19th century antique mirror and Rough Old Glass finishes. Pauls work incorporates vintage and found objects, curios and, more often than not, antique taxidermy which is partially gilded using traditional techniques.

Our Gilding Workshop was commissioned by Decca Furniture to hand paint and gild 136 glass panels which are to be used as mini bar doors in the Dorchester Hotel Suites. Each door with it's floral and willow design was hand painted by our in house artists. Fine gold details were applied behind the translucent glass paint to highlight the petals. They were then reverse gilded in silver leaf in a haphazard fashion and distressed to create a distressed mirror finish.
