No job is to big or to small for Baroque silversmith!
We do all of our work "in house" so we can oversee the entire repair process
from beginning to end. Jack's Old World Craftsmanship and expertise will bring your old and tarnished pieces to Life again. You can be sure all your important pieces will be handled with expert care. 

Because most pieces are disassembled before plating or repair, we carefully document and photograph all pieces prior to disassembly. This practice helps us ensure that each item is reassembled in exactly the same manner as it was delivered to us.

 

Plating

Plating is Baroque Silversmith's specialty. Plating is a process by which a metal (or sometimes plastic) object can have new metal bonded to it. The first step in the process is to  clean, pre-treat and prepare the item for electroplating. The item is then dipped into a plating vat that contains the solution of dissolved metals. An electric current is applied, and the metal is deposited on the surface of the item being plated. Metal plating results in a new finish that will last for years to come. Below is a list of the different finishes available.

bulletSilver
bulletGold
bulletCopper
bulletNickel & Tin
bulletBrass
bulletPewter
bulletChrome

In addition to the finishes we can also:

bulletAntique
bulletDarken
bulletLighten
bulletShine
bulletDull
bulletSatin
bulletBrush
bulletOil rubbed bronze
bulletRoyal

These finishes and techniques can be used to match almost any sample provided.
