Our latest project involves the conservation of a collection of Zulu and Indian weaponry belonging to Dunvegan Castle on the Isle of Skye.

The collection consists of a range of interesting pieces, including the likes of hair and leather shields (shown above), hair accoutrements, clubs, boomerangs and axes.  All of the pieces have been prepared for display through cleaning, consolidation, the treatment of leather and metallic parts and waxing, where appropriate.

‘The new London by Design gallery (now open) at the London Transport Museum will explore how London’s transport has become one of the world’s most enduring examples of successful brand identity and a world leader in transport design. Looking at the reciprocal interplay between the past and the present, the gallery will look at key design elements, including corporate identity, maps, vehicle design, posters and designed environments from the early twentieth century to the present day. It will also uncover the stories behind some of the early pioneers of transport design including Frank Pick, Harry Beck, Edward Johnston and Charles Holden, as well as exploring exciting future developments in the Capital’s transport system.’- London Transport Museum.


Richard Rogers Conservation have been responsible for the object mounting and installation of this new permanent exhibition.  All of the mounts are bespoke and each displays the pieces in a discreet but conservation friendly manner.  For more information, contact us.
