No job is to big or to small for Baroque
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 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.
|Nickel & Tin|
In addition to the finishes we can also:
These finishes and techniques can be
used to match almost any sample provided.
Polishing at Baroque Silversmith is done
with meticulous care. No amount of time is too great to ensure your
satisfaction. Whether it be a treasured heirloom or a simple door handle
from your home; we at Baroque silversmith are here to take care of you
and make sure your piece is polished to perfection. We do many types of
|color-buffing with rosin. This type
of buffing can be used to match aged surfaces.|
|Soft wheel buffing to bring out the
true luster and shine.|
|Hard polishing to remove pits.
(provided the metal is thick enough)|
|Hand polishing to gently shine any
