I restore other metals, such as pewter, brass, copper, white metal and speltzer. I also restore silver and gold plated wares. I am often asked if it is possible to repair a plated piece without re-plating. I do many repairs without re-plating.
Pewter tea set
This pewter tea set was straightened, dents removed and polished with a satin finish. It is also an option to have pewter finished in a high polished finish.
Gold plated crown
This crown was crushed. I straightened the metal, soldered the breaks and polished. The crown was missing pieces. The client choose not to have the missing pieces replaced.
Brass Lacquered candelabra
I disassembled the candelabra, removed the lacquer, straightened soldered and machine polished then reassembled.

Sylvia / CA
Ms. Robben, You will never know the love you have restored with the restoration of our families candelabra. They were mothers pride and joy. I thought of having them at her service but was told they not only couldn’t be restored in time but may not be able to be restored at all! I was so touched when I got the email that they were on the way back. I will be honest, I thought they would not look too good. They were amazing, in time for moms service and I could just tell came back with Love. Thank you!

Mae / WV
Ms Robben, I had no Idea you could cast a whole new foot. I was in hopes there was a way to just have a stick or something that made it sit upright again. The restoration you sent back is nothing short of perfection. Thank you for your talented work.
