We specialize in all archival conservation framing, using only acid-free 100% rag materials, as well as Artcare products designed to guard the artwork against damaging external pollutiants for many years. We also recommend, when called for, UV filtering acrylic or glass to shield artwork against fading.
Almost anything can be protected and displayed by encasing it in a shadow box frame. We have shadow boxed puppets, football jerseys, icehocky skates, earrings, cigar labels, dageurotypes, and silk jackets. This is an excellent way to display precious heirlooms and photos together for the family to enjoy, without the hassle of dusting! See some examples here
We work with several different restorers, depending on the type of restoration involved, whether it is oil paintings, paper art, glass, metal sculptures or furniture. We always request an estimate before work is commenced.
It is very difficult to give an accurate estimate without seeing the piece "in the flesh" as it were, so we ask that you bring the piece in for an accurate estimate. If the piece is large, or you have difficulties transporting it, please call us.
Art Search Services
We perform searches and fill requests for original fine art. Our requests span the range from old world painters to impressionsist to contemporary. Please email us indicating what you are looking for - include as much detail as possible.
