Charity Goes To the Vet – Chapter 2

Every great project has equally great people associated with it and Charity’s restoration isn’t any different. The restoration is being led by Wellman Conservation and local artist Toby Mendez will be working on recasting the paws. We’re going to let you in on a little secret, Charity isn’t made out of iron, he’s made out of zinc and pewter which was a common home statuary material in the late 19th century. There are very few artisans who still work in zinc so our conservation expert Howard has reached out to the Smithsonian for advice. We guess we’re just traveling in those circles now!-)
