Believe it or not, but I purchased all of the pieces from Scott Antique Markets in Atlanta and had them restored by some of my favorite artisans. Dan and Beth Walker of North Carolina's Oexning Silversmiths preserved the silver pieces by stripping them to their base metals, removing dents and pits, and then buffing, polishing, and replating them. To bring the life back to copper pieces, I turned to Jim Hamann of East Coast Tinning to make them food-safe and shiny again with a retinned lining and newly buffed and polished exterior.
