is gold-plated.

From one generation to the next, the Mertens family has passed on its love of goldsmithery. Gold-plating is a painstaking technique to cover various items, such as objets d'art, objects of worship and precious items, with gold to enhance their value.

Gold electroplating, burnishing with agate stone for a patina, matte or shiny finish and plating, are all techniques requiring dexterity and savoir-faire, carefully honed by the artisan, and these qualities are only acquired through years of painstaking work.

Please see below a non-exhaustive list of objects that can be plated with gold:

  • Jewellery and watches.
  • Chandeliers, grandfather clocks and candlesticks,
  • Bronze furnishings.
  • Objets d'art, decorative objects.
  • Cutlery.
  • Etc.

The workshop also crafts items to order on request using plans or models.

Opt for gilded interior and exterior decoration: ask our team of experts for a custom estimate. No need to wait, just contact us.
