The expert restoration of metal items is a time consuming process, requiring knowledge, skill, specialized tools and creativity. Here you see good examples of Before and After work, ranging from realtively simple polishing to work which involved fabricating replacement parts necessary to restore antiques to their former glory.

Japanese Brass Urn Repair and Restoration Project

This red patinaed brass piece had been dropped and broken in the center, completely cracked in half between the top of the legs and the bowl.

The repair required a jig be made to hold the two parts mated together in the exact position and perfectly level before using epoxy putty to form a strong bond and weld them together again.

Following that process the repair was filled and sanded smooth and coated with a carefuly blended mix of three paint colors to match the origional appearance. Finally, after careful cleaning the Urn was brushed with Meltonian wax and hand buffed to a gentle shine.

Before restoration, it was honestly impossible to see just how beautiful and detailed this antique copper Persian table top is. Delightful results!
