About This Picture
This frame belongs on an 18th century English painting, newly acquired by one of our museum clients. After stripping away years of grime and repairing loose decorative elements, Brian Gordy, Director of Gilding and Restoration, is preparing it to be gold-leafed. When complete the frame will be entirely refreshed while retaining the beauty of its age.
Restoration is only one of our specialties. For a full description of everything we do click the “Explore Our Services” button.
