Can you lacquer antiques? What does this do to and for the piece?
We can lacquer any type of metal. Lacquering provides a protective

be "USED." Lacquering silver is NOT RECOMMENDED.
Do you design and manufacture custom pieces?
YES! At Estes-Simmons we have highly skilled craftsmen who redesign
unique one-of-a-kind pieces. We also custom make prototypes.
