Framing and Restoration

At Perceval Designs we provide a comprehensive service from our knowledge of reproducing and restoring the finest of framing and furniture for more than 25 years. Whilst employing traditional techniques our expert carvers, gilders, and cabinetmakers are able to recreate frames from the 15th to the 20th century for collectors, museums, art dealers, architects and interior designers.

If the client has an existing antique frame that unfortunately doesn’t fit the painting, we offer an alteration service which requires the frame to be enlarged or reduced. The frame is dismantled, altered, reassembled and restored. The finished result is undetectable and the painting is now working in harmony with the antique frame.

The image to the right shows the reproduction 15th century tabernacle frame we produced for Botticelli’s Virgin and Child. This was entirely hand carved with distressed water gilding and hand-painted
inscriptions all created in our workshops.
