Frame Restoration for Hamilton Hamilton

The frame was in very tough condition, but was period and had original gold underneath the bronzing, and was asked to be restored by the client.

Where possible we took the bronze down to the original gold, and then matched it with new gilding. The frame was backed-up, re-stabilized, and the joinery adjusted. In-filling was used to mend the wood splits that had occurred in some of the more intricate flourishes of the frame, particulars the corners. The restoration added a great deal of stability and shine to what is truly a great frame.
