Cast iron bench restoration

We’ve just restored this beautiful bench for a private customer in Tenterden, Kent. This bench had been in their family for some time and was much loved and in need of repair. Martin Smith and Cecilie Robinson (Nadfas intern) made a full assessment of the repairs needed once the bench had been stripped of it’s paint. Incidentally this bench was the focus of a blog article I wrote a few weeks ago, because we found what we believe were the remnants of the original Coalbrookdale green colour right next to the cast metal. The bench was finished in Mid-Brunswick Green paint and looks very handsome back in situ.

Restoration of a ‘Passion Flower’ bench

The restoration team recently completed the refurbishment of this lovely three seat Passion Flower pattern Coalbrookdale cast iron bench. The bench was missing several sections which had broken off over time, which Ironart’s Martin Smith cleverly recreated. If you have an antique cast iron bench that is in need of repair, and would like some advice about the cost of renovation and the processes we use, please get in touch.
