This fine example of an early nineteenth-century carved and composition frame has suffered from surface grime, gilding abrasion and losses to carved applied mouldings. The conservator’s first task was to remove surface dirt that had accumulated over the decades and then restore the lambs tongue and twist and bead applied carving. On-going treatment will involve re-gilding the flat areas, toning the newly restored areas and applying a protective coat of rabbit-skin glue size.
