Repairs and Restoration

This Jack Jones oil on stretcher;  a typical work depicting a Welsh valley scene with an always-present coal tip.  Serious damage, one example of which is shown spoiled an interesting work.  Sucessfully corrected and probably even Jack would be pleased.

Unusual

Kenyan Wedding Apparel.  Girl from the UK got married in Kenya and this was part of her dressing.  Thousands upon thousands of tiny coloured pieces meticulously threaded.  1150 x 380mm  frame  size. Lined with cor board to give the needed depth. 

Another challenge

This 1500x1000mm poster was a challenge.  The customer wanted a thin frame.  We managed to get down to a 25mm wide black  cushion shape.  We should have put up a picture of the system for hanging it which would mean showing the reverse side. (ingenious) Portrait Poster Next time we will.

Stitchwork Ovals

Stitchwork Ovals

The Seasons in stitchwork. Four delicate stitchworks from the 1920’s. A very satisfying work to complete. All four had been roughly installed in some plasic frames without glass. Transformed with a stunning black mount, glass and an aged gold frame.
