Sterling & Metalware

Metalware sustains a variety of damage over its lifetime.

Most metals corrode on contact with water, acids, salts, oils, aggressive metal polishes and other chemicals. The type of corrosion on your piece depends on the metal it is made of. You may also see breakage, dents and scratches from accidents or the mishandling of your intricate metal items.


All of the before and after images are of actual items that we have repaired, restored and/or conserved.
