Description:
Manetti genuine pure, heavy silver leaf is produced using the latest technology and respected traditions of the Italian gold beating craft.

Manetti is one of the oldest manufacturers of gold and silver leaf in the world. Founded in 1820, it has conserved the ancient craft of gold beating, handed down from generation to generation. Over the years, the historic craftsmanship for which Manetti is famed has been updated by the introduction of modern machinery, without compromising the company's high standards of quality. With over 170 years of experience and a large production capacity, Manetti is the key name for quality gold and silver in Italy and worldwide. Manetti gold and silver leaf are 86 mm x 86 mm, differing in size from all other varieties of leaf.

A book of loose silver leaf is assembled by placing each unit of silver leaf between sheets of thin rouged paper. The gilder can then remove one leaf at a time without disturbing the remaining leaves. It is removed from the book with a gilder's tip, a flat natural hair brush.

Manetti silver leaf is 86 x 86 mm (3-3/8 x 3-3/8 inches) and is available in units called "books," each book containing 25 leaves. For volume discounts order one or more "packs" of silver leaf; each pack contains 20 books or 500 leaves. To order a pack just order 20 or more books to get the special pack price.
