Gold lace is not gold lace. It does
not deserve this title, for the gold is
applied as a surface to silver. It is
not even silver lace, for the lace is ap
plied to a foundation of silk. The silk
en threads for making this material are
wound round with gold wire so thick
ly as to conceal the silk; and the mak
ing of the gold wire is one of the most
singular mechanical operations itnag- |
inable. In the first place, the refiner i
prepares a solid rod of silver about an !
inch in thickness; he heats this rod,
applies upon the surface a sheet of gold
loaf, burnishes this down, applies an- I i
other coating, burnishes this down,
and so on, until tho gold is about one
hundredth part of the thickness of the
■diver. Then the rod is subjected to a
train of processes which brings it
down to the state of fine wire; it is
passed through holes in a steel plate
lessening step by step in diameter.
The gold never deserts the silver, but
adheres closely to it, and shares all
mutations; it is one hundredth part the
thickness of thesilver at tho beginning,
and it maintains tho same ratio to the
end. As to the thinness to which the
gold coated rod of diver can bo brought,
the limit depends upon the delicacy of
human skill; but the most remarkable
example ever known was brought for
ward by Dr. Wolloston. This was an
example of solid gold wire without
any silver. TTe procured a small red
of silver, bored a hole through it from
end to end, and inserted in this hole
tho smallest gold wire he could pro
cure; he su bjec ted the silver to tho us
ual wire-drawing process, until he had
brought it to the finest attainable state
—being, in fact, a silver wire as fine
as a hair,with a gold wire in the cen
ter. To isolate this wire he subjected
it to warm nitrous acid, by which the
silver was dissolved, leaving a gold
wire one thirty thousand part of an
inch in thinness—perhaps the thinnest
round wire that the hand of man has
yet produced. But tho wire, though
beyond all comparison finer than any
employed in manufac tories, does not
approach in thinness the film of gold
on the surface of silver and gold lace.
It has been calculated that the gold on
| the very finest silver wire for gold lace,
is not more than one-third of one mill
ionth of an inch In thickness—that is,
not above one-tenth thickness of or
dinary gold loaf.
