The restoration was undertaken by Andrew Knight of Basil Loveridge glass restoration, Brackley, one of the premier glass restorers in Britain. We have taken images and relevant measurements before and after restoration. We hope that this unique approach is widely adopted.

The restoration cost was just £41. When you consider the skill and time used to achieve this and consider the result itself this is money well spent and our collective history is returned to being to fully functional and fit for purpose.
