Restoration of the Chancel Brass
By Doug Cumming
The lovely brass work in the chancel of our sanctuary should be shining like new by Christmas. What a Christmas present that will be!
The restoration of the brass was a project undertaken by Woody Sadler (more than a year before he was pressed into service as a new Vestry member and senior warden) and Mo Littlefield. With the help of Marcy Molinaro, they contacted one of the best brass restorers on the East coast, Steve Roy, got an estimate, and began quietly finding funds to pay for it.
The project is not merely to clean and polish, but also to coat the brass in a special coating that will eliminate the need for polishing ever again. All we will need to do is dust. The mighty eagle of the lectern and the gorgeous symbols of the four evangelists around the pulpit will give off that warm glow that has made brass the metal of royalty for millennia. The estimate from Roy two years ago was $22,000.
That much has been raised, thanks largely to a $11,000 matching grant from the Gadsden Trust. Roy has just returned to reappraise the job, to see if he can keep the cost within that range. Stay tuned.
Here’s is a blog post I wrote about this.
