Having our repair, glass cutting, metalwork departments under one roof and our own glasshouse just a few miles away, allows us to restore a vast range of chandeliers, from the earliest Georgian examples to the latest continental pieces.
Our extensive collection of old patterns, moulds and large stock of pieces, allows us to replace or recreate any item that is missing or broken. We use a variety of techniques from sandblasting to stripping and re-lacquering to restore items following deterioration or damage, always ensuring that we use faithful methods in order to retain authenticity.
