About Verre Églomisé

  • Verre églomisé is a French term meaning glass gilded.
  • It is a process where the backside of the glass is gilded with gold or metal leaf using a gelatin adhesive.
  • The result is a mirror-like, reflective finish in which designs are then engraved.
  • The technique dates back to the pre-Roman eras, but its name is derived from 18th century French decorator Jean-Baptise Glomy who was responsible for its re-popularization.

  • We don't know the exact precise composition of the various foreign metal alloys used to make this.
  • We aren't metallurgists and we cannot ever be 100% certain about anything.
  • Alloys are combinations of metals used for practical and artistic reasons such as durability.
  • Using 100% of any metal might make the product entirely too soft to endure.
