The UK is known for its rich and varied history, including many well-known battles.
This wealth of history means that items of weaponry that survived earlier periods of conflict have become popular with collectors.
When working on antique weapons, as with all items we restore, we know how important it is to retain the character that tells the story of their past. As such, we only carry out restoration where repairing areas is considered beneficial, such as to increase the value of the piece or to return it to use. Wherever possible, our efforts are concentrated on preserving these pieces of history, rather than restoring them to as-new condition.
