FRAMES

As an addition to painting restoration we also restore frames. Cleaning, paint re-touching, gilding, and reconstruction are the more common frame procedures. Historically when a frame was commissioned for an individual painting, its cost was often equal to the painting itself. Over time, most antique frames are damaged by amateur repairs and painting re-touching, weather/environmental conditions, poor storage and rough handling. We are highly skilled in all aspects of framing and frame restoration. We provide cleaning, paint removal, structural and ornament repair, re-carving, casting, gilding and refinishing for any type of frame, whether it’s plaster, gesso, composite or carved wood.
