We restored all the exterior metal work to the four corner towers at Smithfield Market. Each dome has four finials over the lunette dormers and a larger one on the lantern roof. They required varying degrees of repair, we conserved where possible and created like for like only when absolutely necessary. Our restoration to the finials involved replacing cast iron flower details and replicating the leaf and ball details in wrought iron. The copper covered wooden base sections had to be repaired or replaced and some minor repairs were carried out on the copper cupolas in situ.
The finials were finish painted in original colours and we gilded the balls and leaves.
