Restoration of a 19th Century Parisian Masterpiece

POSTED BY SARAH MOORHEAD 5 MONTHS AGO - No Comments

Every frame is a work of art and every frame job is special in some way… But every once in a while, something truly rare and special comes your way.

We have the honor of restoring a very rare frame in our Toronto HQ workshop.

Parisian Baroque Frame Restoration

Originally constructed in 1890 in Paris, this Art Nouveau-inspired masterpiece is a rare find. Its construction is nothing short of outstanding. Three layers of solid wood make up the frame, which was delicately hand joined and, once completed, gessoed together and water gilded.

At the moment, our master craftsmen are hard at work restoring this 131-year-old beauty brought to us by Roma partner and friend Reb at Broadway Decor Inc.

Our team has dedicated endless hours and an enormous amount of patience into restoring this frame using only original pieces. Every last piece, even the smallest ones, will be hand-applied.

When the restoration is complete, this gorgeous frame will become home to a Saint Jerome painting valued at roughly $500,000 and will hang in a private collection in Reb’s customer’s home in Toronto.
