Thrones of State, Hillsborough Castle
The onsite upholstery conservation and covering of the Hillsborough Castle, Throne's of State. All the original horsehair upholstery was conserved and covered with a new silk/cotton velvet. The 20th century braids were then painstakingly reinstated by carefully hand stitching along both edges.
All this work could not have been achieved without the help and support of David Orr and the rest of the team at Hillsborough Castle.
