MAKING A NEW 'OLD' ONE!
Sometimes we need to recreate the original photograph and frame, here
the original photograph & frame was restored but we also 'duplicated' it in two sizes using frames sympathetic to the period
This photograph has now been restored & replicated in two sizes, the original size and a smaller version.The arch-topped mat has been cut by hand for both versions
Applying the leaf to the size on the bevel for the larger of the two re-creations
Here we see the traditional skills and dexterity of an experienced picture
framer, combined with both the traditional & 21st century skills of our photographic restorer
