Restoration of ancient silverware and gold objects
Like his father and his grandfather before him, Nicolas Marischaël is now responsible for passing on the knowledge accumulated over centuries to the coming generations of artisans.
Owning tools which date back from the 18th century allows him to ensure that ancient manufacturing and restoration methods and techniques are scrupulously followed.
Nicolas Marischaël is a member of the Grands Ateliers de France and of the CNES (National Chamber of Experts Specialized in Decorative Arts and Collectibles). He was also a member of the Ministry of Culture's Council for Artisan Trades.
With a quality of work that has earned him unanimous praise from his peers, Nicolas Marischaël performs restoration work for museums, collectors, antique dealers, and discerning private clients who believe in the importance of abiding by traditional rules.
