TREATMENTS

Most of our clients come to us through word of mouth, seeking help for their furniture and wooden objects because of years of use and the effects of sunlight as well as over-heated and under-humidified homes. Some find us after unfortunate moving experiences or other unexpected acts of God, guests, children or staff.

PURCHASE CONSULTATION

Acquiring a work of art or an antique can be daunting and full of pitfalls. We advise on condition, quality and extent of past treatments or modifications, providing a written report with supporting photographs. We do not provide appraisals. However, based on our report the client will be able to make an informed decision whether or not to acquire a piece.

COLLECTION CONDITION SURVEYS

To catch problems before they become catastrophic collections also require an assessment from time to time. Pieces are examined for issues including conservation needs, environmental conditions and potential insect infestations. We provide prioritized condition assessments, with photographic documentation.

EDUCATION

Our education and experience enables us to advise clients and their staff on the proper care and maintenance procedures for their collection. We also enjoy imparting our knowledge of the technical and material aspects of objects made from wood, and have given lectures to those interested in learning about construction techniques, wood identification, historic finishes and restoration and conservation practices. For more information, please contact us.
