Magazine for heritage and restoration
A few months ago, we had the privilege of performing an extremely interesting restoration.
In the April 2013 edition, the renowned German magazine RESTAURO will publish an extensive article about this unique restoration.
The Castle Lembeck.
A gilded chandelier that has been hanging in the Schlaun’sche Hall, inside Castle Lembeck in Dorsten (Westfalen, Germany) for many generations. The chandelier was carved from limewood and composed of many individual ornaments. It’s in rococo or late baroque style.
The chandelier has sustained severe damage during and after the Second World War. To prevent even more damage by the ravages of time, leaving no or very little undamaged ornaments to restore the chandelier in an appropriate manner, it was decided to restore the chandelier straight away. The restoration took place in 2012 and was performed over the course of several months.
The decision to restore the chandelier fortunately was a timely one, seeing as it was already quite a challenge to find out what the missing ornaments looked like or might have looked like.
In the April 2013 edition of Restauro, an extensive article about this restoration will be published.
