Restore and replate brass communion ware
I work for a church and we are trying to find out if it is possible to restore and replate brass communion trays and bread plates. Ours are worn and slightly dented in places; they are quite old.Marilyn Oliver

Yes, it's certainly possible for a plating shop to polish/buff out any scratches and replate these items. As for dents, however, I'm not confident that the average plating shop would have the metalworking skills to do actual restoration work.You could either talk to a plating shop which serves the public (several are listed in our Jobshops Directory) or take your pieces to a metal working artist and let him/her arrange for the necessary replating.
