Our Work with Iron and Steel Restoration

Newmans’ Ltd restores art objects that are either made entirely of iron or steel or are mixed materials objects that contain elements of either metal. We treat the objects to remove dirt, apply even oxides in pieces designed to show contrast, and burnish highlights. In the event that parts are missing from an antique piece, we analyze the area and recreate the part. We often will finish by lacquering the objects to prevent further oxidation.
