Restoration – Victorian Church Panel

Victorian Church Panel

Due to metal fatigue and inadequate installation the panel developed extreme surface deflection. Restoration required a reconstruction of the entire panel. Glass elements received a heavy cleaning treatment due to the amount of surface debris present on the exterior side of the panel. 25% of the glass was replaced with replica pieces. Memorial inscription was reproduced with hand painted lettering. Custom structural supports designed to enhance stability of the panel.
