Bespoke Mandarin Gilt Leather panel. Cuir de Cordoue personalisé

Bespoke Gilt Leather you said ?

At Lutson you will not find Gilt Leather ready form the shelve.

At all times we have claimed to fight uniformity.

All the gilt leather panels made in our workshop are hand made and hand painted,

which makes each panel unique in its own ways.

 Bespoke or Custom made Gilt Leather is our thing.

Fact is that if you wish bespoke Gilt Leather …..

You will find that there are not many studio’s offering this sort of service. We do …

Here some pictures of a very bespoke Mandarin.

This panel is not a “traditional” polychrome panel.

The inspiration came from the early 18th century Coromandel lack screens.

In the the Lower Countries and in the UK some Chinoiserie screens were made on tooled Gilt Leather.

You will note the uneven gilding,

the semi transparent black background was painted on a reddish ground.

The Mandarin as you will find it in our current catalog is a design that dates from circa 1700

 It was produced by a German workshop form Augsburg.

As Always
