Restoration of ancient gold artefacts

From the first gold artefacts dating back to the Iron Age, which were made using the same techniques as for bronze (cold forging, engraving, punching, pressing, casting), through Christian Era to the goldsmithery of the 15th Century, right up to when the distinction between everyday ornaments and funeral ornaments came about, each restoration job is a narrative of the elegance of a tradition perfected over the centuries.
