For hundreds of years art, furniture and architecture have all been enriched with gilded and painted schemes, from the basic picture frame to the more grandiose architectural elements.
Oil gilding is generally used for architecture due to its versatility with the regards to the surfaces on which it can be applied. Unlike water gilding it can also be used outside and is a cheaper solution for interior gilding. Dominic Schuster Ltd’s experience in the field of restoration and gilding enable us to work with the same attention to detail on large projects as on smaller pieces of furniture.
As well as undertaking gilded and painted schemes, we can provide a research and project management service, with full condition and scientific analysis reports.
