Leather gilder

The leather gilder specialises in using micro-thin sheets of gold, silver or other metals to decorate leather surfaces. If silver leaf is used, this can be lacquered with a yellow varnish to give it a gold appearance. Leather gilders use this age-old technique to enhance objects such as furniture and handbags.
