Chatterton Lacework Melbourne manufactured lacework and balustrades as part of the restoration of the National Hotel in Fremantle, Western Australia.
This historical building features a large clover lacework on the upstairs balcony and smaller clover lacework on the ground floor. This design is fitted beneath the clover key frieze to make a stunning display of original Victorian lacework.
An excellent display of sunflower panels in the balustrade and a matching intermediate baluster highlight the upstairs balcony, with all designs authorised by the National Trust.
Fremantle Western Australia has become an integral part of the heritage architectural lacework landscape with displays of old lacework dating back to 1850 seen on many public buildings and hotels. This traditional style lacework is being replicated on many new, modern properties while old properties are being restored with a replica of the original design or a new design dating back to the same period.
The National Hotel Fremantle is a perfect example of lacework and balustrade restoration on a historical building.
