The Antique Burnishing Company  | Telephone: (44)01276 856922

One of a pair made in Hanover circa 1830.  Much wear and tear occasioned by their ceremonial use required a comprehensive restoration of all the various elements.   As well as supplying new bespoke drum skins and bindings and polishing the steel  fittings,  the bodies required both burnishing and boiling.  The quality of the metal and subsequent attempts at repair had distressed major areas of the surface and mounts.  By virtue of both multiple boiling and burnishing the affected areas were restored to an even silver surface of uniform colour and finish.   Particular attention paid to the highly ornate chased feet also recovered the original burnished detail of the pair.
