Giltwood

During the 17th century, giltwood works were associated with luxury.. Jean Pelletier was the first to use the gilt gesso technique in which gilding and all other decorations are applied to wood. The gilded surface depends on the quality of the artist's carving. Crafted of luxurious giltwood, these pieces have a lavish decoration of naturalistic motifs, interlace, rosette, flutes, garlands and ribbons. One of the things that makes giltwood works so unique is the fact that the wood is carved and gilded by hand with excellent craftsmanship, making them great investment pieces that can be passed down through generations. These beautiful pieces can bring an instant injection of elegance, light, and allure to any atmosphere. From chairs to tables, chandeliers, and many decorative objects, you can expect to find one-of-a-kind giltwood pieces for any need.
