All the works have to originate from the piece of art itself and from its decades-long dignity and value. Therefore, copying the tiles and fixing these into the stove is a rather debateable from the point of view of the restoration ethics since foreign bodies are incorporated to the stoves that are more than a century old.
But on the other hand there exists no better solution because the initial function of heating, its visual unity and completeness are returned to the stove so that the result/product would be aesthetically acceptable.
While copying the missing tiles it is possible to restore only its material shape and visual unity. The authentity of these stoves is always questionable and debateable in spite of the desire for the closeness to the original. Our authentically restored stoves can be viewed under “Portfolio” link.
