Michael Brook has over 35 years of experience working at the highest level of antique restoration.
English and continental metalwork is often found on objects that incorporate more than one material to make a complete object.
We provide a complete conservation service to our clients coordinating professional conservators/restorers who work in other media including: wood, marble, porcelain, glass and blue john.
As well as practical hands-on restoration we also act as consultants caring for collections by way of planning, support and advice in the safe handling transportation and display of metalwork. We can provide condition reports, proposals for treatment and estimates.
We restore metal antiques for private individuals, collectors, auction houses, museums, historic houses, antique dealers, shippers and packers and insurance companies.
The metal antiques we have repaired range from objects that are treasured family heirlooms to nationally important heritage pieces.
Whatever the monetary value attached to the piece, we apply the same standards of care and conservation ethics to every job.
Consultation with the object's owners before we start, as well as during the restoration process, informs what work will be carried out.
Respect for the unique integrity of all objects is important to insure their preservation.
