Damaged Bust

Repairing / restoring a ‘bronze’ bust’

This bust of a ladies head was brought in to the Market Place shop with a damaged ear and was not able to be displayed as it did not have a plinth.

We have repaired the ear and matched the bronze finish which returned it to its original splendour.

The plinth was turned by a local woodworker and varnished to give it a gloss finish which brought out the grain beautifully.

Having been joined together they make a beautiful feature.
