Major Museum Piece

October 17, 2018

 

 19th Century needlework tapestry

and its original custom crafted frame

with historical significance.

 Fogg Art Restoration conserved and restored the frame.

The frame was cleaned, rebuilt and the structure strengthened. Missing ornament was

recreated and replaced.

The surface finish and patina was recreated

with layers of mica powders and 22k gold leaf. 

"I could not be more pleased with the restoration of the frame for my family tapestry. How fortunate we are on this part of the Maine Coast to have such a center for conservation on such a high level and so pleasant to work with."
