Major Museum Piece
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."
-Christopher M., Brunswick, Maine
