Designed by Giovanni Bon and his son Bartolomeo Bon.
Ca’ d’Oro or ‘House of Gold’ sits on The Grand Canal in Venice, Italy and is known by this name due to the gilt decoration which originally covered its walls.
It was designed in Bon’s Venetian floral Gothic style as with the nearby Palazzo Barbaro and Pallazzo Giustinian which remained fashionable until the end of the 16th century.
The model is made of plaster, lead, brass and gold leaf with other additional materials.
Highly detailed including additional watercolour work, highlighting the complex tile detail of the façade. The crown caps the façade and is cast in lead.
The back wall of the water gate is pierced through with further tracery allowing light to travel through the turquoise hand made glass.
