Client comments:

Hammersmith Studios executed some very complicated structural repairs on a couple of nineteenth century Chinese bronzes and highly elaborate nineteenth century Indian bronze statuary.

The work was skillful and well researched.

I would not hesitate to recommend Hammersmith Studios for any such complicated antique metalwork repair assignments.

Restoration project client comments:

We brought Hammersmith Studios a fireplace summer cover that we’d purchased from an antiquities dealer. The item had been badly packaged and had broken in transit.

When we brought it in, we had little hope that the damage could be repaired.  Hammersmith Studios said they could do it.

They offered us a fair price and did the work ahead of schedule.

The cover looks magnificent–cleaned, restored, and repaired. The repair involved both joining a break and casting and attaching a new piece to replace a missing corner. The repairs are so well done that they’re barely visible. 

This is true skilled smith work.

We strongly recommend Hammersmith Studios.
