We, at the Paul King Foundry, are experts on the history of bronze casting and the various techniques used throughout the ages. We have restored and repaired antique bronze statuary. The challenging problems involving new and antique sculpture are approached with the eye of an artist and the hands of a skilled art foundry craftsman. We are specialists in 19th and 20th century European and American bronzes. Authentication of bronze statues by style and technique used is an offered service. We can also recommend scientific analytic testing as a valued resource for the owners of public and private sculpture. As an expert on bronze sculpture, for insurance, legal claims and authentications, we provide examinations of contemporary and antique sculpture as well suggesting treatment options. All treatments follow the guidelines established by the American Institute for Conservation and are documented in written and photographic form.
