Ebonised overmantle with silver leaf detail circa 1880


Much of our business relates to the restoration of frames. Sometimes only small repairs are needed but on occasion we are brought a ‘jigsaw’ to strip, repair, gild and reassemble!!  


We restore frames ‘as was’ and they are appropriately aged.  That said, many of our customers have a particular look in mind and we work closely with all our clients to achieve this.


We have a large portfolio completed on behalf of antique dealers, interior designers, private clients, auction houses, insurance companies and churches.  Our portfolio includes objects such as weather vanes, clock finials, beds, chairs, console tables, stools, chaise lounges, pelmets, clocks, girandoles, picture frames, mirror frames and Buddha’s - and some Verre Eglomise (gilding on glass).  


Our business includes a collection of antique mirrors, gilded items and furniture for sale.  Please see the Shop on this website for further details.
