Restoration of the sculpted stonework and painting of the coat of arms over the main door to the King’s Manor York, Exhibition Sq. York YO1 7EP

An extremely delicate and highly skilled operation to restore the stonework and the decoration of the Royal Coat of Arms originally carved in the 1630’s.  It involved the removal of various later repairs, the reforming of missing parts, extensive cleaning of the stone and the repainting of the whole in its splendid heraldic colours.

The initial study of the stonework and the preparation of a brief for the restoration was itself a highly sophisticated exercise employing the latest techniques.
