In an effort to unite tradition and modernity under the banner of the Arts & Crafts movement, the craftsmanship of Verre d’Or and Margó- gilder workshop is combined with innovation, imagination and creativity.

We are specialized in Traditional Water Gilding & Reverse Glass Gilding (verre églomisé).

This is complemented by other historical techniques such as the in-house production of glue chipped glass with its fascinating details. As a special feature, we developed a combination of glue chipped and muslin glass, which we introduced to our manufactory as a unique selling point.

With a constant focus on the individual needs of our customers, we believe that contemporary design requires a philosophy built on the foundations of traditional knowledge and innovative change in order to develop creations that justify the use of valuable resources and which last over time independent of short-lived trends.
