A sub frame


This beautiful eastern print came in for some repair work recently. The glass had broken and the frame was looking a little tired. The frame is quite thin for the size of glass needed, so we build a new sub frame on the back, this is basically a plain wood frame build purely for strength onto the back of the main frame. Once that was done we touched up the black frame areas with a combination of paint and wax and then fixed the main chips on the gold areas with a gold wax. New glass, fittings and a clean and this amazing piece of artwork has been given a new lease of life.
