how do I look after...? 


We are often asked how to care for paintings, furniture, embroideries, tapestries, glass, ceramics, photographs, works of art on paper and a multitude of other objects, either in conjunction with our conservation or restoration wok, or independently. Much as been written to help owners look after their treasures, so we have compiled a list of resources available online which provide information about how to care for your item. Please do not hesitate to contact us you would like to discuss the care of your item in more detail.
