Frame Restoration

Your

Gregory and Toby Guest are experts in the restoration of original frames, both antique and modern.

As original frames are becoming recognised as an important and valuable addition to a painting, the restoration of all periods of picture frames has become a larger and more important part of our service. Having the original frame on an artwork will, usually, increase its value.

Guest Fine Art undertakes restoration of both large and small projects, using plaster recipes that have been unchanged for over a hundred years. This preserves the integrity of antique frames and will allow the new repairs to age in harmony with the original plaster work.

Any repairs are then hand gilded and toned to match the original aesthetic.

If you have a cherished artwork in an original frame that is looking a bit worse for wear, please feel free to bring it into our gallery in Osborne Park for a free no obligation quote.

Once a painting has lost its original frame it is rare for them to be reunited. We at Guest Fine Art are big proponents of keeping your painting in its original frame, where appropriate, as often the cost of restoration is a lot less than the cost of a new hand made frame of the same quality.
