As well as using the traditional manufacturing and finishing techniques we are happy
to employ the latest technologies to restore a wide variety of objects. Working
in close collaboration with one of the Country’s leading experts in laser cleaning,
the workshop undertook to remove the tarnish from a pair of embroidered kettle drum
banners. This highly controlled process can remove tarnish and dirt from otherwise
uncleanable objects. The silk fabric and associated silver and silver gilt threads
were thus painstakingly treated and much of the original decorative effect restored
without any damage to the underlying material.
