It is tragic when a beloved family heirloom or part of a collection is damaged, or falls into disrepair simply due to age. These things are not replaceable, but they can always be restored, though it is best not to attempt fixing them on your own. Recreating finishes, repairing chips and gouges, broken legs or arms, re-caning, upholstery and other parts of antique restoration calls for master craftsman.
Restorations done using commonly available modern materials alter the unique beauty of any antique. Restoring finishes and major parts back to rights, and in keeping with the period, calls for experienced antique restoration. Proper restoration will not only retain the value of your investment but in most cases, increases it. This is the best way to preserve the past.
Stains and paints, or fasteners and hardware, that are a century or two old are rare and difficult to get, and many times are custom-made for the piece being restored. Recreating Old World finishes from scratch requires a lot of skill and knowledge. The same is true of hand turning, wood carving and joinery; these long out of use methods call for a master’s touch. Working with Niki Francis gives you access to all facets of antique restoration and old world craftsmanship.
At Niki Francis Restorations, we understand just how important it is to get back what you had. We work with families, collectors, museums, antique dealers, and insurance companies to repair and restore just about anything due to flood and water damage, fire damage, moving or simply old age.
