Repairs & Restoration
Even with due care and attention, accidents can happen, and damage may be caused to your silverware. In many cases this can be rectified. We work extensively with silversmiths who have followed the fine traditions of their craft, being apprenticed in workshops with generations of expertise in restoring fine silver. In their hands, it is possible to restore items to their former grandeur. We regularly provide this service for our established clients, so bring the item to us, and we can then advise as to what needs to be done and obtain an estimate for the work required.
For items of hollow ware which have glass liner inserts (such as salt cellars, bowls, and cruet sets), we can also arrange to have bespoke glass made to fit, or even in some cases, create a completely new bottle to match an existing set. A frequent service we carry out is to remove chips from the glass bodies of claret jugs.
