Old Colonial staircase railings unlike modern railings make used of precast concrete balustrades. Some balustrades even received special ceramic coatings.

The two pictures below show the original entrance staircase. ( more than a hundred years old ).

Seeing is believing.......fantastic restoration work. First, the drawing, the design, the search for restoration materials, the workmanship, the proper skills, teamwork etc etc to make this a success.  thumbs up
