Restoration of Silver Objects
Our Work Restoring Silver Objects
Our restoration of silver objects takes many forms, from hollowware used for serving or dining to jewelry or medals. For any of these projects, we analyze the pieces for areas of damage. We examine which patinas may originally have been applied. In incidents where the oxides are stripped, we re-apply a patina. We repair bent or broken off parts, and finish the pieces by respecting their original patina.
Many of the projects we undertake involves fixing and rebuilding mechanisms such as the condiment servers, below to your right. Others are comprised of many different parts which have often broken down due to structural weaknesses or damage due to accidents.
Many of the objects that are considered to be silver are, in fact, silver plate. Silver plate was invented in the 19th Century in response to growing technology, and the desire for objects of prestige in the burgeoning industrial owner class.
