Abstract

The purpose of the commission was to undertake historic paint research on the chairlift, at Dudley Zoological Gardens, to determine if evidence survives of the original or early decorative schemes. The elements sampled include (where appropriate) – painted elements of the chair lift, including the iron support structures of the roller system, chairs and surrounding timber.
The aim is to ascertain the original paint scheme colours used following the Chairlift’s installation in 1958, and to produce specifications to replicate researched colours in modern materials.
