More About Gilt-Bronze

Likewise known as ‘Ormolu’, this strategy uses high-carat, carefully ground gold in a mercury amalgam to a metal surface such as bronze, brass or copper. The mercury is then burnt-off in a kiln leaving a gold-coloured veneer referred to as ‘gilt-bronze’.

Using mercury for this was banned in the 1830s due to its poisonous nature and was gradually changed with electroplating which is the modern method for producing gilt-bronze as well as gilt-silver.
