thanks for your comment, it has made of solid walnut even top flat is from walnut and hand carved, i only has gilded it , it has been double gilded , it takes for me and my assistant about 5 days on gilding the whole process including prepairing the work for gild took about 12 days , I got 800,000 Tomans ( about 800 U.S dollars for gilding this table ( consol) and this table has been priced by my client (gallery owner) 4000 dollars.

After you pay for the gold leaf and other materials, that doesn’t leave much for you and your assistant. 12 days for two people and only $800? Assuming an 8 hour day, that’s only about $4 per hour even if you don’t have to pay for materials or anything else. WAY too little for such work!

I wish I had the skill to do such beautiful work.

This is beautiful but what is the purpose of using Walnut if you can not see and appreciate the Walnut wood?

thank you for your friendly and helpfull comments, Bigtiny I dont use real (genuine) leaf nither gold nor silver so it’s material is not expensive a book of 500 sheets about 20 dollars. but I agree about the time and skill we use and the money we recieve , it is not much . walnut is very good to be hand carved and is as you know very strong wood, yes it has been hidden under the leaf, but its handcarving shows itself better. :-) again thank you very much and pleas put more comments for me

Thats just amazing.
I agree with big tiny, your work is way undervalued!
A photo of the unit before the process was done would be great to see when you post another project.
