Insitu fireplace restoration in Chiselhurst (BR7), Kent.

Insitu restorations are always a challenge. Today’s restorations where in a Georgian house in Chiselhurst. They consisted of extensive wirebrushing before coating with a black lead substitute and buffing up to the traditional graphite shine. As well as replacing a missing hood on one of the fireplaces, luckily they had the exact same fireplace with hood in another room so we can have the original re-cast at a foundry.
