The Japanese Art of Gold Plating

The Japanese art of gold plating is a method of depositing a thin layer of gold to the surface of another metal, in the case of the Cellini Romanesque it is stainless-steel. This is done by the way of chemical and electrochemical plating. The place settings and other pieces were processed in the cover plating method used in the modern Japanese electronics industry of the late 1960s. The Japanese method of gold plating of stainless-steel is used in the manufacture of the Cellini Romanesque flatware. The stainless-steel molecules are diffuse into the gold layer, causing a gradual fading of its color and eventually causing a pure hard and durable 24k golden layer on the surface of the flatware.

The Road to Modern Flatware was Hard.

The road to modern flatware was long and hard. In the Middle East by the 11th century there were many utensils similar to our flatware of today. The knife is one of the oldest and most widely used made by men eating utensil. The spoon developed from the old English “spon”, means a chip of wood, and the early spoons were carved from wood, bone, stone and other materials. Spoons are not new to the world and have been used in the ancient world in Egypt, Greece, Rome, and India. The middle Ages in Europe meals were served on slices of hard bread and only royalty used utensils, which were more for court life than practicality.
