These museum quality gold leaf nameplates are primarily used for fine artist oil paintings and limited edition bronze sculptures.
My nameplates are each gilded with 23 karat gold leaf on hard wood plates. They can be antiqued (darkened) or have added imitation fly specks added. Other colors of gold such as moon gold (a white gold) and lemon gold or palladium can also be used. Each are handlettered with permanent black ink and sealed. For each artist or collector, we will work together to determine the ideal lettering style for the body of work or painting.
Typically each nameplate has two lines of text, the top line being the title of the piece and the bottom line being the artist’s name. Sometimes a third line is added with a little subtitle, such as a place name or artist birth and death years. Often decorative lines or brackets are added to the top and bottom edges for a polished look. Especially on the smallest size of nameplate, those are often only lettered with the artist’s name and are used for bronzes.
