Antique and vintage furniture from our stock
Fire gilding has been carried out since antiquity and was the most important and therefore the oldest known metal gilding technique until the 19th century. With fire gilding, the spread of the amalgam thickens the gold layer in the indentations. This leads to a characteristic difference in gloss, especially with fine ornaments.
Beautiful, richly openwork stand frame for photographs or graphics. Historicizing decorative elements: rocailles, shells, acanthus leaves and palmettes. Made around 1880.
