Frame Conservation & Repair

Whether it is just a few chips and cracks or a picture frame with extensive losses we can repair the damage and preserve the frame.

We cast from the existing parts or recreate by hand carving to replace what is missing. Structural damage is repaired, and substrates stabilized. Repairs are finished to match and blend with the existing patina. Steps are taken to maintain the original intention of the frame relative to its age.

“I have been working with Rhonda Feinman for years. The frames she and her employees create are themselves works of art. Their quality is superb, the gold leaf finishes are unmatched, and best of all, they are a pleasure to work with. I could not recommend a framer more highly.”
