REVIVE: GOLD HOUSE NUMBER RESTORATION
Those who are renovating their brownstones or opening a classic shop uptown should check out the decorative painting and gilding company based in Harlem called see.PAINTING Inc. Besides plaster, painting and gilding finishes, the artisan company specializes in hand painting & gilding Signage on glass. Gilding on glass is also known as verre eglomise and is standard to private brownstone entrance number signs, and this local company does it in the way it has been done for centuries.
Goldleaf or gilding is both elegant and durable and uses paper thin sheets of gold metal as the base. These properties made it among the most popular sign materials in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. See.Painting not only has worked on local brownstones but has restored gilded murals within the dome of the Williamsburg Savings Bank and also notable restaurants such as Balthazar.
