Each silver piece is carefully inspected by our experts prior to & during each phase of the restoration. All work is then executed using time-honored techniques & authentic tools. Our repair shop services are the backbone of any proper restoration project. Silver pieces thought to be beyond hope as well as minor repairs are all undertaken with equal importance.

 

Our silversmith can carefully remove dents, reshape, solder broken pieces, & even re-manufacture a missing part in sterling, copper, bronze, or white metal.

 

Statue Restoration

Normandy offers complete restoration services for objects of art in bronze & allied metals. Objects that have been cracked or broken can be repaired i.e., welded, soldered, finished, & colored. These repairs, once made, will be invisible. Missing parts can be re-sculpted to match the original. Castings of these parts can be reattached, properly finished & match to the original.

 

Flatware Repair

Garbage disposals are the main source of silverware damage!

 

But even what looks impossible to repair after being caught in one, can almost always be restored, sometimes at half the price of a new one. A priceless baby spoon ground up badly can probably be saved by our experienced silversmith.
