The era of the Industrial Revolution saw an unparalleled process of democratisation of ornaments, thanks to the introduction of new materials and innovative techniques to craft interior architectural features. These included decorative ceilings, arches, cornices, columns, all of which had been extremely expensive before. George Jackson is one of the protagonists of this movement. Founded in 1780, the company first introduced composition in the United Kingdom, a putty-like substance enabling the production of enrichments without using the traditional method of wood carvings. The company then went to introduce fibrous plaster, revolutionising the scene of interior ornamentation.
Over more than two centuries, the artisans of the company have worked on an incredible variety of architectural projects, from the Queen Mary and Lusitania ships to the most prestigious Royal buildings, theatres and residences internationally, and this extraordinary expertise is witnessed by their unique collection of more than 11,000 original moulds.
Today, the materials and techniques used by George Jackson have evolved to offer new solutions, but craftsmanship remains at the core of their unique offer of exceptional, bespoke decorations.
