Conservation

Commissions for Conservation work:

Proposed conservation treatments will be fully discussed and quotes and completion dates agreed  prior to the commencement of work.

Museum level conservation would always be ideal but we appreciate that in the real world it is sometimes necessary to tailor the conservation to a level which is appropriate to the  value of the object and within the confines of available budget.
