We fabricated and installed a new copper finial that is an exact replica of the original including the original vent system. The original “lamp” gave off so much heat that it was necessary to vent the excess heat out through the finial.

We hand formed full relief copper roof cresting consisting of spheres, fleur-de-lis’, and scrolls. These are not just flat sheets with the designs cut out. They are full three-dimensional panels that are 1” thick at their thinnest point and stand proud of the roof a full 6” at the scrolls.

We hand formed copper finials to replicate originals (in the background) as well as restoring existing ones that were salvageable.
