I work on all periods and styles of picture and mirror frames.
The wooden structure of the frame is treated as necessary, and missing wooden ornament can be recarved. Moulded ornament is replaced by taking moulds and recasting. Gentle cleaning of the gilded surface ensures the build up of dust and dirt is removed, without affecting the gilded surface. If possible, over layers of paint or gesso are delicately removed to reveal the original gold and structural definition.
Gilding is applied where necessary and worn back and toned down to match the original.
An oil painting conservation service is also available.
