Restoring Early Enamels
We toned down the image of the French gold and enamel plaque so you could clearly see the wonderful work, from a thousand years ago. Such pieces are rare and if in need of restoration, preserving the status quo is often best.
Whether this is required, or partial replacement, or a perfect replica, Keith will be delighted to help. His life has been about enamelling and working with such historic pieces is a pleasure.
Neither have the core techniques of artists and craftsmen changed too much. Materials and equipment may be more advanced but quality of work is still controlled by skill and care.
Beyond those essentials is the real depth of enamel, an art form which transcends time. As clear in early enamels as is the case with fine artists today.
