Silver and Antique Repair

Your family treasures can never be replaced with modern reproductions. The fine detail, intricate design and high quality of older pieces are not found in today's silver. Investing in the repair of antiques and old silver not only restores, but also extends the functionality of the piece far beyond that of contemporary products. Most importantly, the original beauty is regained, enhancing the sentimental value of the heirloom, which is priceless.

  This is an example of a sterling silver double jigger that was badly oxidized and had a few dents in it. We removed the dents, and polished it back to its original luster.

Let our experts repair your family heirlooms here in our full service repair department. We have a combined experience of over 90 years. Our department fuses old world techniques, with new age technology. Every piece that comes in is carefully inspected and handled to assure you it will return in a timely fashion.

We are known throughout southern Louisiana for being one of the last true silver and goldsmiths in the area. Our service department can bring just about any silver or antique tragedy back to its original condition. Our specialty is sterling silver holloware and flatware restoration. We can repair your pieces in a timely, economical fashion. Even when you think your pieces are beyond repair, let us take a look at them and give you a estimate. Usual repair times range from 2 days to 3 weeks. Silver plating is a little longer.

Here is an example of a candelabra that came into our repair department. It was in need of a little TLC. The arms were slightly bent, it was heavily oxidized, and in need of a good polish. As you can see in the before and after photos, we can bring your silver pieces back to life.

For your convenience we can have UPS pick your packaged items up at your home or residence, and return them promptly (extra charges may apply, call 1-866-524-8080 or email us at for more info).

This piece came in after damage from hurricane Katrina. It was actually salvaged from under a piece of furniture that had been sitting on top of it for months.

We offer free estimates on all pieces; you only pay for shipping to and from our shop.
