Expert Ornamental Leadwork Service

Highly Experienced & Qualified

Ornamental Leadwork

Silk Leadwork specialises in Ornamental Leadwork services, producing original works or restoring old lead ornaments for clients across London and the surrounding areas. Our extensive range of lead services are completed to a high standard, including our ornamental leadwork.

Lead can be used for ornamental and decorative purposes, and much original leadwork has been lost over the years. Bad repairs result in a further loss of these ornaments and Silk Leadwork is dedicated to preserving Britain’s historic ornamental leadwork, by providing a professional and skilled service. The durability of lead means it can last upwards of 100 years before it starts to deteriorate, but during that time it is not unsusceptible to damage. Silk Leadwork can restore your ornamental leadwork pieces back to their original state, or create brand new ones.



Variations of Ornamental Leadwork

Ornamental leadwork can vary, from garden furniture to household items. With the earliest known lead object dating back to 3500BC, there is a huge variation of leadworks throughout history. Ornamental leadwork can come in the form of: 

  • Statues 
  • Roofing Features 
  • Ornamental Fountains 
  • Plaques 
  • Planters
  • Cisterns 
  • Memorial Urns
  • Motifs
  • Trellis Tunnels 

Silk Leadwork creates and refurbishes ornamental leadwork for projects both big and small, and have even worked on historic buildings like the Tower of London, Royal Albert Hall, and Westminster Abbey. Our ornamental leadwork varies from project to project, but our quality standards never waver.
