Lustre with nozzle. (Plate from a manufacturers catalogue)






Research such as that shown here, using prints found at the Victoria and Albert Museum show how even the smallest pair of lustres and their components are important to us. New master patterns had to be made for this repair once this print was found.







Nozzle. (Plate from a manufacturers catalogue)






To make the correct repair we use antique books and drawings as well as old recipe and formula books for gilding, bronzing and colouring. We take great pride with careful and sympathetic restoration.
