Saint Panteleimon Russian Orthodox Church

Our expert craftsmen used their exterior gilding skills  on five domes for the church.


Location: Hartford, CT
Built: 1972
Original Architect: Designed by Fr. Dimitri Alexandrow with architectural firm Austin & Mead
Style: Russian Byzantine Revival


The five onion domes atop Saint Panteleimon Church were stripped, primed, and gilded using 23.75 karat gold leaf. The gold leaf, light as a feather, is the most durable of gilding material available so long as the proper process and techniques are applied.
