Gilded Sand

At Alexander Lamont we have perfected the 18th century technique of transforming sand into a solid and elegant textured surface. It was first used to create a matte counter balance to the high shine of burnished gold leaf in the heavily carved picture frames hung in the Catholic churches and cathedrals of Europe. Used on the surface of our Bague Spot Table, the gilded sand contrasts beautifully with the smooth bronze base.
