Fine art print restoration and custom framing

Mary Cassatt, Baiting, fine art print, signed

The print was restored, re- framed with museum quality mat board with gilded bevel and protected with Museum Glass. In order to present artwork correctly mat board margins were increased.  Appropriate mat board width is very important. The width is determined based on artwork, frame style and mat board color.

antique painting restored and re-framed

John J. Enneking, oil on canvas, Private collection, Hamilton, Bermuda

After restoration was completed the painting was framed with Italian Cassetta frame in Dutch finish with wide gilded liner. We created a custom gold shade with green undertones to complement painting colors. Gilded liner finish was heavily antiqued so it would not compete with the painting. We always select shades of gold after artwork treatment.

Antique art framing Russian Icon

Russian Icon- The Icon was restored and protected Private Collection, New York City, N.Y.

“The icon has been in my husband’s Russian family since the 19th century. My husband’s grandmother, Evgenija Esenin, a first cousin of Sergei Esenin, brought it to Serbia, as part of her dowry. The restoration is magnificent, as is the frame Mira picked for it. It is gorgeous, absolutely!!! My husband said he could not have picked out a better frame and the workmanship is beautiful, fully restoring it to its former glory. Thank you so much.”
