French parcel gilt bronze figurine restoration

Restoring a French parcel-gilt bronze figurine
by D. Simon, sculptor

Newmans, Ltd. at work 

We are restorers of unusual objects and mechanisms. Recent projects range from the entire metal collection of North America's oldest synagogue, to a set of Oceanic ceremonial weapons, an electric salesman's stove created in 1900, and a 19th century French Taxiphote stereoptic glass slide viewer.

We solve problems through the liberal, fine, and applied arts. One of us is a Fulbright Scholar and a recipient of the Rome Prize, one of us graduated Magna and another, Summa Cum Laude. We have worked in industry as teachers, directors, large project managers, legal aides, systems coordinators, designers, bakers, retail shop owners, clerks, and museum guides.

We solve complex problems outside the box.

Much of our work involves subtle, rather than dramatic, corrections. 

This figurine came to us with accumulated small problems.  To see how we brought back the sculptor's original vision,
