Gold-plating, an ancient method of applying thin layers of gold to items to make them look glamorous, now becomes a favorite of provident people. Gu Yi Ge in Beijing allows lovers of gold-plated artworks to spend their money wisely on a fine piece.
Once inside, one finds it irresistible to bring one item home. There are flat plates with intricate floral designs, jars with openwork tops, Central Asian-taste flagons, Buddhist-style incense burners...The works are made based on ancient designs, radiating a strong sense of antiquity. The outer layer of gold on each piece gives a feel of extreme luxury.
Such works are made by master craftsmen who have received countless awards for their achievements. For certain designs, only a limited quantity of items are available. Some fine pieces were bought and sent to international dignitaries as gift.
The shop owner himself is a master, who speaks a little English. He ships his products to almost every country of the world. .
