For the exhibition Gold we worked with the furniture gilding and bookbinding conservation teams at Royal Collection Trust to look at conservation processes using gold leaf.

These silent films show the various processes involved in restoring a gold table, including preparing the ground, applying gold leaf and burnishing, and the processes involved in applying gold leaf to the edges of the pages of a book and decorating a tooled binding.

This exhibition explores the qualities that make this rare and precious metal an enduring expression of the highest status, both earthly and divine.
