Customer Feedback


"Oexning was recommended to me by our local goldsmith who has made many items of exquisite jewelry for my wife.  I trusted his recommendation and have been delighted with the results. I have used Oexning to refurbish silver and silver plate which belonged to my parents, some of which is over 100 years old.  Their work is exquisite, and they can almost miraculously remove dents in these heirloom pieces before replating them. I'm sure my beloved mother is looking down from heaven with a smile on her face when she sees the silverware she received as a young bride back in the '20s, now restored to all its glory. I cannot recommend Oexning too highly.  They do what they say they will do, and the results are remarkable."  - Cy - Collector - MT 

"I received the biscuit box and I’m thrilled.   I honestly can’t understand  how it can be so perfect.  My grandmother would be so happy!!!! Thank you for your dedication to the art of silversmithing." - Betsy F. - MI

"Thanks so much for your prompt and great service.  Pickles will definitely be on the menu and you have rescued the spoons!" - Dr. C. B. - Collector - CA


"Elizabeth, I am simply speechless!  The QUALITY of this job! 

Even my husband was astonished.  (He liked it so much that I even got up the nerve to tell him what I paid for it.)


Your pictures in you ads are no come-on.  They are REAL.

You do realize that this tray would be worth less than this if it were sterling, don't you?  BUT!  It is a fabulous (and fabulously detailed)  tray of Angkor Wat.  Show me any other kind of comparable souvenir for  Angkor Wat.  Angkor Wat is special.  It takes a lot of time and effort  to go there.  It costs a lot to get there.  It is worth all the effort.

And so, I was astonished when I saw this tray on Ebay.  For $35.   And I was also pretty astonished when I polished off every shred of  silver plate that was ever on it the first time I cleaned it.  I now had  a perfectly lovely rose-glowing copper tray.

And now...  well NOW!!!

That thing is over there shining in the sun!!  SILVER!!!!

(And I thought I needed to stress to you that I wanted heavy  plate.  Quadruple plate.  Oxidizing the details in the background so  that the details would show through.)  Did you laugh when I said all  this to you?

It is like telling Julia Childs how to cook.

Again.  WOW.  Just WOW!

Love it and love all of you for letting us benefit from your expertise!" - Emily - SC

"The coffee pot just arrived and I am thrilled!  I looks just as beautiful as it did when we were married.  I have hated the repair job the local silversmith did, but didn't have the time or energy to take it to be re-done properly. So I'm very  grateful and thank you and Dan many times."  - Jean - Collector - MD

"Just got the ladle back today by UPS. The wife is so happy with it and we both want to thank you for doing such a super job on it.
