Description: In 2012 David Kynaston was commissioned by Chester West and Chester Council to restore the armorial bearings of the seven Norman Earls of Chester along with the ancient and modern versions of the Chester Arms which grace the Queen’s Park Suspension Bridge in Chester. The arms, which are cast out of lead, were fully repaired with all their broken and missing parts replaced. They were then fully repainted and finished in 23 1/2 carat gold leaf. The silver wolves’ heads were finished in palladium leaf.

I reproduce below some of the photographs from the web site of the restorer and encourage my reader to pay it a visit. A worthy project undertaken on behalf of a proud local authority by a true craftsman.
