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.

It is common practice to apply artificial wear as part of the restoration. We request that this is not done as it can be misleading.  The restoration cost was just £32 and when you consider the skill and time used to achieve this result, we consider that this is extremely good value for money.
