Gold or Copper Leaf Ampersand
Choose either mirrored gold leaf or matte copper leaf finish for this hand painted and gilded ampersand, available in a variety of sizes and in the background colour of your choice (see colour chart). They come in a contemporary black frame but are also available in white frames on request.
They are available in two sizes: standard (18 x 24 cms) and large (30 x 40 cms).
Each one is made using traditional sign painting and gilding techniques and uses real metal leaf and not imitation leaf or foil. They are the real deal.
The process for making these is the same as used by sign painters and gilders for generations. The outline of the ampersand and the background colour are painted with enamel paint directly onto the back of the glass before the gold leaf is applied using the water gilding technique which creates a stunning mirrored finish (yes you can see your reflection in it!).
As the items are made to order it will take around 3 weeks from the time of your order until despatch.
