The importance of using a skilled silversmith.
The most important skills required to undertake this type of work include, the knowledge & understanding of how the work-masters & silversmiths of the past worked & how items must be restored & repaired to their correct original condition.
The restoration & repair process begins with a thorough cleaning. All necessary repairs, the removal of dents, any splits & straightening etc. is then undertaken.
Many repairs require the removal of certain fittings such as handles & 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 & taking care to preserve the ‘Antique Patina’ wherever possible.
Our Silversmiths possess the expert skills to work with old silverware, which is often worn & of a thinner gauge than a similar new item. They are frequently constructed from different alloys of solder & require care when being worked upon, because the joints can melt at unpredictable temperatures.
We are dedicated to producing the highest level of craftsmanship & quality, restoring our customer’s treasured heirlooms & our own stock to their original value, beauty & refinement using skilled silversmiths & goldsmiths.
We determine the necessary work involved & then estimate costs more precisely once we have inspected the item in question during the consultation process with you, preferably in the shop environment.
