Client Comments

Just a brief note to thank you all for the repair/restoration of my family's Bybee pottery vase. It looked so horrible before but now, thanks to you, it is like new and a thing of beauty. Know how much I appreciate your skill and workmanship. It is a treasure! Many thanks,

Sterling and Metalware

Metalware sustains a variety of damage over its lifetime. Most metals corrode on contact with water, acids, salts, oils, aggressive metal polishes and other chemicals. The type of corrosion on your piece depends on the metal it is made of. You may also see breakage, dents and scratches from accidents or the mishandling of your intricate metal items.

Suggestions for Caring for Your Metalware and Sculpture

  • Keep your metal objects covered and free of dust, debris, and oily residues.
  • Do not repeatedly polish or clean with chemical dipping solutions as they may gradually eat away plating, surface decoration, engraving, maker's marks, and monograms.
  • Maintain an environment between 40 and 55 percent humidity.
  • Store your metalware in glass cabinets and shelving rather than wood cabinets and shelving as many woods and wood products, like plywood, emit acids and other gasses that cause metals to corrode.
Contact a conservator for intervention if:
  • Metal corrosion becomes apparent
  • Parts are missing or warped
  • Dents or scratches are evident
