Metal conservation is our Business

Projects : Monuments

Since ancient times monuments have been created to remind us of rulers, important individuals and historic events.
The permanence and eternal quality of these monuments is reflected in the artistic use of durable materials like metal and stone.

Bronze, the ‘metal of heroes’, is the preferred metal for the casting of national monuments and statues. Its high value and resistance to corrosion make it ideal for casting works of art.

In the 19th century, a period when monuments enjoyed particular popularity, new metals like cast iron and pewter came into use. In 1850 the first large monuments were created by the process of electroforming.

For decades our workshops have had the expertise to deal with the complexities of restoring and conserving metal monuments.
