A Venetian gilder

A peak into the studio of a Venetian gilder.

I could have stayed all day to watch!

Cavalier    Campo Santo Stefano    Venice

Alberto Cavalier spends his days with his father in this superb, tiny studio. They not only make and gild their own photo and mirror frames, but also create fabulous gilded masks, traditional moretto doorstops and carved and gilded lampstands.
