Lillias Guyon – Gilding & Conservation


I have specialised in conserving, repairing and restoring gilded objects ranging from frames and furniture to reliquaries and gilded ceilings since 1999.

Working for museums, churches, stately homes, state buildings and private clients, the techniques I use are traditional and are to a museum standard. I conserve the original where possible, whilst reconstructing missing ornament when needed, and toning the new gold to match the original gilding.

Based in my studio in Belstone, near Okehampton in Devon, I am an associate member of ICON (The Institute of Conservation).
