Antique Mirror Styling
For a unifying stylistic theme our Decorative Mirror Collection has been inspired by the major decorative art movements. Their timeless appeal can add a note of Gothic drama or classical elegance to a room. In addition to the Gothic and Classical styles you can consider Palladian, Regency mirror styles.
To enhance the styling our decorative mirrors are hand finished in either a traditional gilded finish or one of our paint finishes should you require a more contemporary look.
Traditional Gilded Clock Finishes
The appeal of a gilded finish is timeless and is the ultimate in quality and faithfully reproduces those of antique clocks. We are one of a handful of workshops still employing traditional gilded techniques. So if you are looking for a gold clock we can offer the whole range of finishes; 24 carat gold, gold metal leaf and antique gold. Our silver clock finishes include; light silver leaf, tarnished silver and pewter.
Decorative Paint and Leaf Finishes
Combining gilding with paint finishes creates a synergy where by one enhances the other. It can also be used to break up large expanse gold or silver leaf which can be a bit too over powering or to pick out details or subtly accentuate the shape of a time piece.
