They produce glass for the house, website is down at the moment. http://www.idogi.com/

The use of gold leaf in glass is not uncommon but there are alternatives used too.

This is a holding page for the site owners. It means the site doesn't exist yet, or they've made a mistake! :)

If you can upload a link to a photo it will give the people here a better idea, however, valuation is a very individual thing so you might not get this.

(Comojoko you're doing fine getting the image uploaded. Once it's there look at the gallery page the picture is on and below the photo you'll see a box that says File Information. Almost at the bottom of that section is a line which starts URL...  copy the website link from that line (see above for how it looks) and paste it into a message here on the board to connect the picture to your query.)
