This video shows the removal of a part of the wallpaper in the Grote Zaal (Great Hall) of House Dedel. This so-called ‘Imitation Gold leather wallpaper’ was made in Japan around 1880 and is very rare. The restoration process is being executed by one of the leading Dutch paper restorers. The final restoration will be handled in the atelier of the restorers.

A video from 2018 shows Huis Dedel at the start of the restoration process. The speeches at the meeting of the ‘Maten van Mesdag’ are only in Dutch available.
