    So for my birthday my uncle kindly turned up with an intriguing lantern shaped gift. “Another restoration for you Scott” he said!

    Challenge accepted! Not much left to save, paint was shot and the hood was pronounced dead at the scene!

    Bit of a twist with the new brass pork pie style hood. It may hopefully make it onto an actual pork pie fount one day, but it will do for now! Cage so corroded it now has a weird pitted texture even after painting. Anyway, it’s better than it was and it shines again.
