Restorations of an unique Georgian Laylight

12th December 2019

Dorothea started the new year with the dismantling of the large 78 square meter laylight, carefully removing one piece of glass at a time and at the same time supporting the suspended frame. The laylight consist of over 330 unique pieces of glass and non of the piece are interchangeable even thought they roughly look the same size. The wrought iron structure is thin and flexible with wonderful decorative ironwork pinned to the main star section. 

Our team ensure that all the components were removed, tagged, protect and transported to our workshop in Bristol where each components was inspected and fully restored before traveling back down the M4 for installation. Our team managed to transport hundreds of pieces of glass through Harrods distribution tunnel and install them on site without any breakages which is a testament to the care taken. 

The complete laylight and new lighting has transformed the restaurant making it a must see and part of the Harrods experience for all the enjoy.
