BELVOIR CASTLE UK
03 September 2014
Belvoir has been the ancestral home of the Manners family for 500 years and is currently the family home of the 11th Duke and Duchess, and their five children. The present Castle is the fourth to have stood on the site since Norman times. The existing Castle was completed in the early 19th Century after previous buildings suffered complete or partial destruction during the Wars of the Roses, the Civil War and a major fire in 1816.
The Castle contains many notable pieces of art and includes paintings by Gainsborough, Reynolds, Holbein and Poussin. It houses outstanding collections of furniture, porcelain, silks, tapestries, French furniture and Italian sculpture.
Liberon was delighted to be asked to give advice and supply such products as wood floor oil, parquet floor protection, furniture gel protection, and woof varnish repair, for the restoration of various parts of the castle. Products used in the restoration included French polishes for the fine furniture, gilding products for the many beautiful picture frames that adorn the rooms, flooring products and a selection of cleaning and maintenance products to keep the various fixtures looking their best.
