The opening sentence of the 19th centuryís poet John Keatsí Endymion went: "A thing of beauty is a joy forever". We sincerely support that philosophy.

Itís very likely that you too, perhaps unwittingly, are the proud owner of something that you would for ever want to enjoy and appreciate. Often, however, that "something" doesnít live up to those expectations. The ravages of time, a domestic accident, moving house, weather conditions or disappointing football results might have taken their toll. Now, that's where we come in.


Expertly we restore your valuables including antique furniture, frames of mirrors and paintings, works of art of various ages, kinds and materials, interior elements, ceramics, chandeliers and other lighting fixtures. Restoration is being done in a traditional manner with respect and attention to authenticity and the current state of science. We can also be of help in the purchase and sale, valuation, conservation, maintenance, transportation and storage of your valuable belongings.

We can boast a long experience as restorers and we are happy to include private and institutional collectors and antiques dealers to our clientele. We hope this web presence will give you a good impression of who we are and what we do and invite you to feel free to contact us to see if we can turn your thing of beauty into a joy forever.
