Fire damaged hammered metal?
A customer brought in 2 panels of brass on which his dear

Repoussé is a metalworking technique in which a malleable metal is ornamented or shaped by hammering from the reverse side. (wikipedia)
Sadly, they lost their home in a fire. And what do you suppose survived??
Like the pheonix rising from the ashes the two panel which had been stacked were found!
BUT, The top panel exposed to the heat and water lost it's beautiful patina.
