Decorative Ceiling roses Dublin

Hi all,

Decorative platerwork question:


Are there any beautiful original decorative ceiling roses in Dublin accesible to the public?
We are currently looking at restoring and repainting a ceiling rose dating from c 1800.

Were Ceiling roses of this period coloured in original white or were they sometimes painted in more opulent colours.
I know when decorative palsterwork is painted the original detail is diminished so any information would be much appreciated.
