The Glory of Retail glass gilding…
LONDON LEGENDARY SIGNS IN GOLD
It is true that gold has values that traverse currencies and things of great value to man – and we cannot forget to mention the word magic when we describe the the pure allure that gold has upon us.
It has an astonishing effect on the senses and our notions of all things quality, deluxe and beautiful – a powerful affect we never seem to tire of.
Glass gilding is the ultimate product launch and the stuff legends are made of.
We have the facility to construct glass fascia panels and develop NGS vintage signs in several
unique genres, having worked in interior restoration and the gilded framing sector.
Because I have a background in specialist faux finishes our range of aesthetic finishes is much wider that any other sign company. It means we can combine the incredible Verre églomisé surfaces into the world of lettering.
This brings the traditional reverse glass gilding into the modern design world – unique and leading trend.

NGS RETRO GILDING
We are often asked to make the lettering look a touch worn with time. An interesting and new range of opportunity exists now as our signs writing reaches out into new creative areas.

Gold catches the eye like no other – here we explain why
THE LIFE OF GOLD
With its shine being mesmeric and numinous… this charm has no end..
The power gold has on passers by, even on the dullest winter’s day, is what makes it such a key asset to a signwriter’s tool set.
‘Nothing conveys as much impact on a window as gold leaf.’
Raymond. J. Le Blanc. 1978:7
We believe Le Blanc has it absolutely right… gold leaf is the most alive, treasurable, gleaming surface.
But there’s more: it’s affordable, incredibly durable and in most cases the very best way to enhance prestige, success and your business’s visual appeal.
When we removed the original large gilded oak lettering we found there was nothing but powdered wood… the paint and gold leaf was perfect, but just the shell remained.
Benedict Foley, J. Smith & Sons. (Umbrellas) Ltd.
When working with gold leaf in reverse on shop windows, people have literally stopped in their tracks to take in its splendor.

‘While travelling around the country recently, I visited many cities in which gold leaf work seems to be a disappearing art. This is inexcusable. Gold leaf signs are as popular today as they ever were, and the work is profitable and highly respectable.’
(Raymond. J. Le Blanc. 1978: Preface)
