Blue John Restoration



'Blue John Urn' Restoration

This pair of Blue John urns were brought in for restoration in 2011.
As you can see, they were in a pretty poor condition and some parts would need to be
completely remade rather than repaired.

The pictures below show some of the work being carried out by our craftsman, Peter Sharp.

The tops of the urns were re-ground and polished, and two new finials made for the tops.

White Marble and Ashford Black Marble was used to make new bases.
