Conservation, Restoration and Framing
Philip Mould Ltd has cleaned and restored hundreds of paintings over the last two decades. Often, it is only through careful cleaning that a picture reveals its true attribution, and of course value. We are able to offer advice on all aspects of conservation, and regularly undertake restoration work for both private clients and museums. If you have a painting which may benefit from cleaning, please get in touch.
Portrait miniatures require specialist care due to their materials. Painted in watercolour on a support of vellum or ivory, these natural materials can often harbor mould or warp. At Philip Mould we have access to a museum standard conservation studio and also to a specialist framer and restorer. We can advise on single miniatures or entire collections, from an individual new glass to re-presenting family groups.
