Leading Melbourne based lacework and balustrade manufacturer Chatterton Lacework offers lacework reproduction expertise to enable property owners to meet heritage regulations. Reproduction of existing lacework is often necessary to satisfy many of the regulations specified by the local shire.

Chatterton Lacework has several heritage designs of lacework in stock; lacework can also be made to order. However, it can be difficult to replace existing lacework or balustrades. The interpretation of regulations by local shires can also present challenges due to their lack of understanding of the lacework or balustrade designs and their place of origin.

Lacework and balustrade designs on old Victorian properties can be reproduced by Chatterton Lacework.
