Film: Conserving Chinoiserie Pedestals

Watch this film for a behind the scenes look at the conservation of these elaborate chinoiserie pedestals. The pedestals were commissioned by George IV in the 1850s for the Royal Pavilion at Brighton, his extraordinary seaside residence. Following conservation these pedestals will go on loan to the Royal Pavilion. The loan has been made possible thanks to generosity of Her Majesty The Queen following the complete decant of Royal Collection objects from the East Wing of Buckingham Palace, in order for essential reservicing work to take place.
