Restoration Work

"Leda and the Swan"
1991
Federated Charities
Frederick, Maryland

Charles carefully restored this beloved fountain which is the center feature in the side garden of Federated Charities.

Not only did the cast zinc figures need to have years of layered paint removed, but the swan's neck was fractured and several of Leda's fingers and part of her draping hair were missing.
