Repair and Restoration of Antique Mirrors, Picture Frames and Gilded Furniture.

Antique mirrors, picture frames and other gilded pieces can become damaged over the years. Gilding wears from over cleaning and may get painted over, frames can suffer knocks and lose pieces. Antique mirrors and picture frames can fall off the wall when wire or string is used for hanging.

My workshop is fully equipped for antique gilding restoration. Always using traditional methods and materials. 23.5ct and 23.75ct gold leaf is always used unless alternative finishes are asked for.

I have a large collection of moulds covering most styles and anything I don't have I can recreate by hand.

Restoration work can vary from as little as repairing and gilding small chips in the gesso on the frame, to removing any layers of paint, varnish and past restoration to find the original surface. Following such repairs the piece can be patched or re-gilded and aged. I can be guided by you or advise as to the finish of the gold on your mirror, picture frame etc.

I work with private individuals, antique dealers, interior designers, design agencies, auction houses and insurance companies.
