Gilded gold leaf nameplates should be considered where a lustrous title plate is desired - usually when the frame is also gilded. The use of gold leaf on artwork and frames has withstood the test of centuries from both an aesthetic and practical standpoint. Professional artists, conservationists, galleries and frame shops can use these standard designs or commission a custom design form. Our standard nameplates follow a classic ornamental design with 23.5 carat gold leaf laid with an oil-based size. These title plates are inscribed with one or more lines of script. The product can be finished with a clear or antiqued varnish coat.
