Asney Scagliola make display pedestals for museums, art galleries and private homes worldwide.
Most are made using traditional techniques that have changed little in the past 200 years. Pedestals from the Asney workshop are in the British Museum, The National Gallery of Ireland, and many other places of note.
Colour and figuring traditionally represents stones such as porphyry, malachite, lapis lazuli, siena, Verona rosso, chiampo or black porto oro.
More contemporary colours for white space galleries include pale stone and statuary white marble. Square block plinths and cubes of scagliola often replace the historic round pedestals.
For extra security in busy or vulnerable situations we can supply brass brackets that anchor the pedestal to an adjacent wall.
