A pair of quirky Literary Frog bookends, each stacked leather wrapped faux book bracket with a seated reading frog wearing large reading glasses.
We use the time-honoured techniques of lost wax casting, sand casting and wrought iron in our very own foundry. From the hand carved wax to hand polishing and finishing, these processes take time and great care to meet our meticulous standards.
Crushed eggshell inlay, hand-tooling with gold leaf; hand-painting with fine art techniques, the ancient art of gilding and our Argento technique involving canvas wrapping, gilding and painting are just a few of the techniques used to create the authentic finishes on our furnishings. Using traditional tools and techniques handed down through the ages imbue each piece with an air of authenticity and individuality.
Our craftsmen select wood based on beauty, colour and suitability to each individual piece. We still use traditional furniture making, wood working techniques and materials to ensure enduring quality in every one of our products.
Brass artworks are hand cast in our own foundry, using age-old techniques. Occasional application of an inert wax that does not contain a cleansing agent will preserve the patina of the metal. Avoid using abrasive cloths or polishes that may damage the surface.
Leather is a naturally hard-wearing and versatile material that will gain a characteristic and pleasing patina over time. Leather will show natural marks with wrinkles, scars, scratches and bites which are all normal. It is these characteristics that differentiate real hide from synthetic or re-constituted coverings.

Take care not to expose your leather or hide product to continuous direct sunlight as this might lead to fading.
For accidental spills, try to wipe up immediately and don’t allow the stain to dry. Light stains can be removed with a diluted solution of a neutral soap in lukewarm water, but be careful not to soak the leather or hide. Occasionally, pencil marks and other light marks can be removed by rubbing the area lightly with an eraser. If your leather or hide is heavily soiled, we recommend professional cleaning.
