Mirrors can become damaged in a multitude of ways, from small accidental breakages to major household disasters. Our frame conservators can restore mirrors that have faced all levels of deterioration, whether they require a full reconstruction or a simple surface clean.
Antique mirrors can be restored to a level of your choice, they can be gilt to their original appearance or toned down to retain historic appeal. As well as restoring broken and faded features, the mirror can be stabilised to ensure it is safe to return to display. In some instances, we can also arrange for new mirror glass to be installed.
If you have an antique mirror restoration or conservation need, please speak to our team today for advice and an obligation-free quotation.
I just wanted to compliment you on the restoration you performed on my two mid 19th Century oil paintings by W Muller. The dramatic improvement brought about by the cleaning and re-varnishing together with the stabilisation and re-gilding of the plaster frames was extraordinary. The quotation, collection and return were all accomplished professionally. It was a pleasure using your company.
The restoration of the damaged artwork was expertly carried out, bringing back subtle colouring, and included the repair of broken and missing details of the gesso on the frame such that they were perfectly matched. We were delighted with the communication throughout and with the results achieved.
