After careful inspection of the detailing on these pieces, I could see that there was evidence of gold leafing, so I continued in this direction, applying gold leaf where needed. After stripping the old finish, you can see the beauty of the craftsmanship jumping out from behind what was hidden for so many years! Satin and zebra woods were used in the veneers of these pieces.

    Absolutely magnifico! What beautiful work you have done. Just like it was the first day it was finished - I wonder when that was.
