RESTORATION & CONSERVATION SERVICES

We can gild a variety of surfaces, including exterior applications.  

Works on paper, works on canvas or on panel, occasionally require careful attention to restore the image and to retain value.

 

Frames (and furniture) are commonly in need of the same careful attention. We are often entrusted to perform these services for our clients.

We take great responsibility to historical accuracy and preservation and subscribe to the American Institute of Conservation's Code of Ethics.

 

Picture frames, furniture and mirrors can be restored to their full glory but also your artwork (oil paintings and works on papers) are in safe hands with us: We collaborate with the finest art restorers within California.

 

The conservation of picture frames, antique furniture and historical architecture is one of the niches of Aedicule. While every item is unique and requires a different approach, all work carried out will always be done with integrity to the original object.

 

Our services include but are not limited to:

  • Stabilizing structural components

  • Securing existing gold surfaces

  • Removal of imitation gold paint or waxes from previous repairs  

  • Replacement of absent ornamental features

  • Surface cleaning

 

Restoration projects range from fully gilded or parcel gilt picture and mirror frames to furniture, musical instruments, architectural elements and much more. From repairing a small nick to a completely damaged piece: You’ll be in good hands .
