The most important skills required to undertake this type of work include:- The knowledge and understanding of how the work-masters and silversmiths of the past worked and how items must be restored and repaired to their correct original condition
The restoration and repair process begins with a thorough cleaning procedure. All necessary repairs, the removal of dents, any splits and straightening etc. is then undertaken.
Many repairs require the removal of certain fittings such as handles and feet to make good the damage. These items are then re-fitted or silver soldered to ensure the very best restoration.
The final finish is then undertaken, being sympathetic to each piece and taking care to preserve and ‘Antique Patina’ wherever possible.
Our silversmiths possess the expert skills to work with old silverware, which is often worn and of a thinner gauge than a similar new item. They are frequently constructed from different alloys of solder and require care when being worked upon, because the joints can melt at unpredictable temperatures.
We are dedicated to producing the highest level of craftsmanship and quality, restoring our customers treasured heirlooms and our own stock to their original value, beauty and refinement using skilled silversmiths and goldsmiths in our own workshops.
