A RESTORATION COMPANY WITH A DIFFERENCE
OUR WORK FOR THE SCIENCE MUSEUM, LONDON
THE PLINTH OF THE RUGBY TUNING COIL
Located at London’s Science Museum, the Rugby Tuning Coil’s plinth was being touched daily by the public. This caused it’s copper plinth to tarnish and disfigure. Unpatinated copper will tarnish naturally in air anyway, even if it isn’t touched, and so to maintain this bright finish, it was necessary to lacquer the plinth. Even lacquer still requires maintenance, but this protective coating was much more suitable for this bronze feature in this particular environment.
Being able to work in sensitive spaces, and choosing treatments that will not impact on adjacent exhibits, is why we are trusted by high-profile galleries and institutions like The Science Museum, Tate and The Natural History Museum.
