Melbourne based lacework manufacturer Chatterton Lacework offers several old style original lacework designs
and lacework balustrade designs as seen on buildings in Adelaide, South
Many of these lacework and balustrade designs were produced around mid-19th
century by Stewart and Hartley, an established foundry in Adelaide. Some
of these designs included the Chatterton Lacework products known as a Carnbrae
corner and frieze made to fit between timber and balustrade panels V30 and V10.
They also produced a Kenyon corner and matching frieze and balustrade panel.
Stewart and Hartley had a catalogue of over 100 pages and traded under
the name Sun Foundry.
Part of the Adelaide architectural landscape, the lacework and
balustrade designs dated back to 1850 and were seen on many public buildings
and hotels. These lacework designs are very popular today with many modern properties
being built with the old style look. Old properties are also being restored
with a replica of the original lacework design, or a new design dating back to
the same period.
