The Wallace Collection
April 27, 2012 · Print This Article
Back in June 2009 we set about working on a project with top London architects to gold plate approx 42 metres of stainless steel trim to be used on display cabinets at the new Wallace Museum shop in London.
The Wallace Collection is a national museum which displays breathtaking works of art collected in the 18th and 19th centuries by the first four Marquesses of Hertford and Sir Richard Wallace, the son of the 4th Marquess. It was given to the British nation by Sir Richard’s widow, Lady Wallace, in 1897 and first opened to the public as a museum on the 22nd of June 1900.
This world-famous range of fine and decorative arts from the 15th to the 19th centuries is displayed at Hertford House, the main London townhouse of its former owners.
The gold plated trim can be seen, in the images above and below, along the edge of the counter top resting on the beautiful pure gold leafed cabinet panels.
The gold plated stainless steel trim was also used on the reception desk, cloakroom counter, shop till, counter donation boxes and lobby donation boxes.
The stainless steel trim to be gold plated was delivered to us and completed in March 2010.
