Double Old Fashioned Gilded Birds


Gilded Birds is the result of an exciting first-time collaborative partnership with Jan Janeck, a master glass painter whose deft brushwork has appeared on glassware produced by some of the most famous firms in the industry. This elegantly whimsical design, depicting stylized birds perched amongst curling vines, is Janeck's own creation, and every piece will be individually hand-painted and gilded by Janeck himself. Gilded Birds is the only the third entirely hand-painted motif we have ever offered, primarily because this technique is exceptionally labor intensive: in addition to requiring remarkable control and dexterity on the part of the artist, each hand-painted piece must be fired three separate times (at a different temperature for each color). Consequently, a single glass takes approximately five to six hours to decorate, while a decanter requires about 11-12 hours. Gilded Birds has a classic, vintage feel that is simply unlike anything else on the market and sure to complement a wide range of decors.
