Chandelier Restoration

Wilkinson Ltd has grown into one of the largest chandelier restoration companies in the world, with our skilled craftsmen producing work of the highest standard.

Having our chandelier repair, glass cutting, glasshouse and metalwork departments under one roof 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 chandelier replacement 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.
