View Full Version : Truehand Engraving - New Antiquing process and Special offers

Hi everyone,
New Antiquing Process:
I wanted to let you all know that I've just completed a half set of 1903 MacDougall (http://www.bagpipemounts.com/gallery/index.php?album=1903-MacDougall%2F1903-antique)for Dave Atherton and a full set of Premium Thistle (http://www.bagpipemounts.com/gallery/index.php?album=Thistle%2Fantique-thistle) for R.G. Hardie. Both sets have been "Antique'd" which is a tedious process of accelerating the patina with a solution of liver of sulpher and then HAND polishing the silver to a bright finish leaving the engraving with a dark patina. This process makes the silver look 100 years old, immediately!
I think the effect is incredible but I'm probably biased :) so I would love to hear your feedback.

I am offering a Silver mounted Dunbar ABW Presentation Practice Chanter (http://bagpipemounts.com/) for 699.00CAD which includes the custom engraved silver shield.
I am also offering a 17pc set of hallmarked silver hand engraved in Premium Thistle for 1299.00CAD !!
Also, I have a special going on for Sterling silver shields (http://www.bagpipemounts.com/gallery/index.php?album=webshields) starting at 149.00CAD
I accept paypal.

Iain, shouldn't you start hinting to Lorraine that you need an upgrade for Christmas? "But honey, every piper in the band except me has full silver..." :bg:

Group :

I have a set of 1/2 engraved silver mounts from David & I'd like to assure everyone his work is absolutly outstanding...it's nice in the website pictures...however, it's much moreso when you see it in person.

Compared to some other silver work being passed off as hand engraved...what's coming from Truehand Engraving is nothing short of the finest jewelry for your pipes.

I am so very pleased with my decision to commission my silverwork with David, he is (IMHO) about the finest silver-craftsman Gawd ever spit out & a very decent chap to do buisiness with too.

So take note folks...(& thanks Mac...your right !!)...THIS IS THE STUFF the piper in your family "really" wants for Christmas !! ;)
