Giltwood Restoration

Foundling Museum

The Foundling Museum tells the story of the Foundling Hospital, London's first home for abandoned children whose early patrons included Hogarth and Handel.  Over a short period of eight weeks 39 gilt frames, some of monumental size were cleaned and restored in time for the museum opening.  Click below for more details and illustrations of this project or to see the Foundling Museum website.

"Giltwood Restoration were extremely professional and pleasant to deal with and managed a complicated and large project in a very short space of time. The work was delivered to a very high standard I was most impressed by Giltwood and would definitely use them again."
