Chatterton Lacework believe that when restoring an older style home, the process of rehabilitating and studying the design of the iron lace is the most important task.  

By paying close attention to the intricate details of the iron lace, insights into Victorian attitudes and the people behind the construction of the home can be acquired.  

Similarly, when displayed across the facades of both mansions and working class homes these unique iron lace patterns say much about the cultural heritage of the home and those who originally inhabited it.

The many patterns that now appear in the form of iron lacework are a result of the work of a colonial pattern maker who originally carved the designs into a piece of timber.
