Albert Memorial, Hyde Park, London
In 1998 within my previous directorship we were commissioned to carry out gilding to many elements of the Albert Memorial. One element being the large sculpture centrepiece: of Prince Albert. This was double gilded to produce an even greater lustre. We also undertook the gilding to the surrounding gates and railings and the gilding of bronze, lead, stone and marble embellishments.

In 2010/11 we undertook the task of totally redecorating and cleaning the interior of the church, the ceiling was cleaned, restored and redecorated. The architectural mouldings were stippled and sponged to give the appearance of stone. Existing gilded areas were cleaned and restored and in some areas re-gilded and distressed to match original gilding. Marble and wood Alters cleaned and waxed on completion and all other areas were decorated in traditional colours.
