Just got this in from Steve Brown, made in gold, but as you can see missing one handle to one sword.

It has a small enamel repair to the righit arm but generally when viewing is not noticeable.

What are your recommendations on replacing the handle vice leaving it as is? Will replacing it cause any possible damage to the piece or the integrity of the piece?

Last, recommendations for period cravat (even in a section) are appreciated.

Thanks in advance

Tony

No one else piped in, so I will. I would make the repair...nice enough not to be distracting, but poor enough to be detectable as a later repair and not a period-era repair.

But that's my opinion -in this case. I seldon advocate making "repairs" to medals or bars. But to make a reversible repair to a medal with this kind of trauma I think is understandable. But I'm sure there are other opinions that are worthy of consideration.

Hallo Gents, :beer:

if you decided to make a repair, one option might be to ask a good jeweler if its possible to make a cast of the opposite sword handle to use as a mould for a replacement one.

I think if it was mine I would repair it.

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
