Gilt Leather Hangings & Collections Worldwide

In several museum collections, historic house museums and churches, castles and country houses open to the public, gilt leather can be admired and enjoyed. In most of these places, it has been used as wall hangings, but also for other applications as altar frontals and upholstery material.

This list of locations, all open for the public, – all shown of the map – has not the pretention of being complete nor perfect. Houses and locations not open to the public are not listed for both privacy and safety reasons.
