Some of the services we offer in the restoration and repair of antique frames are:

  • Mold casting for recreation of missing ornamentation
  • Barbola and Gesso work
  • Carving
  • 22kt Gold Gilding
  • European Imitation Leaf Gilding
  • Structural Stabilization
  • Tone Matching, Patina

With the time and cost required to repair damaged frames it is not cost effective to restore a non-antique frame that could potentially be purchased or re-created more economically.
