The Neoclassical style has a lot of motifs that needs carvings and of course the Baroque pieces as well.
In Antique Taste, gilding or silvering is only by 18th K, 21th K and 24th K gold foils. Methods of gilding include hand application and glueing, chemical gilding, and electroplating, the last also called gold plating. Parcel-gilt (partial gilt) objects are only gilded over part of their surfaces.
