Upholstery leathers for the Hallwyl Museum, Stockholm

For the Hallwyl museum http://hallwylskamuseet.se/en we supplied upholstery leathers.

which were fitted to a set of chairs form the Hallwyl dining room, by Lages AB

LSH Museums is a group of three Swedish museums the Royal Armoury, Skokloster Castle and The Hallwyl Museum together they constitute a government agency, accountable to the Ministry of Culture.

The original leathers could have been restored yet the choice was made to replace the leathers.
No conservator takes this decision easily, it certainly must have been a long discussed matter among the LSH staff.

In the reserves of the museum the original embossing mould was stored securely, which is exceptional.
No mould needed to be made. In the workshop we merely made the original mould operational.

Form there we made some sample panels. These were apparently conclusive thus the LSH staff took the decision to have the leather panels replaced. The original damaged leathers being stored in the reserve.
