Gilded furniture is easily damaged through scratches, accidental knocks, soot and contamination build-up or rubbing away due to everyday wear or untrained cleaning attempts at home. Gilded areas may also crack as the wood moves due to changes in temperature, water damage or warping. This can all be resolved by professional and sensitive gilding which can be restored in our specialist conservation studio.
Whether there are small areas which require gilding, such as a historic inscription, decorative detail or monogram, or larger spaces covering the entire structure, our team is able to provide specialist gilding repairs. This is done with the knowledge of historic preservation and centuries-old craftsmanship. Our team will aim to match the original colouring of the piece, and can in some cases leave an aged or toned down finish, depending on your preference.
If you have a piece of furniture or an item which requires gilding restoration or gold leaf repair, please speak to our team who will be happy to answer any questions and provide you with further information on this service.
