Bywater Design are extremely proud to be the official heritage furniture restorer for the Brisbane City Hall Restoration Project. During the past months, we have been very busy restoring the wonderful furniture in City Hall. Many of these pieces date back hundreds of years and carry with them so much history and character.
A wonderful slice of history involved in the restoration project, was the repair and re-gilding of this wonderful gold mirror.
Dating back to the 1800's, the 24 carat gold mirror originally from Europe was bequeathed to City Hall and now after a detailed repair and restoration this commanding and majestic piece, which incidentally stands over 2 meters high, now takes pride and place in the newly refurbished Media Room in Brisbane City Hall.
Also included in the many facets of this project was The Restoration of The Coronation Chair for Queen Elizabeths II's visit to Australia in 1953.
We look forward to sharing more photos and stories on the Brisbane City Hall Restoration Project, including the wonderful refurbishment of the original Shingle Inn Booths.
