parcel-gilt

Parcel gilt is a decorative art technique that involves applying a thin layer of gold leaf to part of an object, often a piece of furniture or a picture frame. This technique is used to create a contrasted, ornamental finish that is combined with a painted surface. The gold is applied in small sections, or “parcels”, which is where the name parcel gilt comes from. This technique is often used to highlight certain details of the object, and it is frequently seen on antique furniture and other decorative pieces.

Gold parcel gilding is an incredibly useful and aesthetically pleasing technique that is commonly used to draw attention to details on antique furniture and other decorative items.
