Many of our clients turn to us for professional conservation of their autograph treasures. For more than 20 years we have partnered with the firm of Vern Stein Fine Art of Buffalo, New York. Our close collaboration with Vern Stein provides us with access to the finest, museum-grade, conservation boards, glazing and frames as well as an array of specialty fabrics (moire, raw silk, etc).
One recent example of our conservation is a 1915 Autograph Letter Signed of Pope Benedict XV written to the Director of Osservatore Romano. The letter was paired with a complementary image and matted in rich ecru moire with gilet filet, museum conservation glazing, and a high-end gilt wood frame.
We also have, at our disposal, the master calligrapher/designer David Ashley of David Ashley Studio (see elsewhere on this website). David has created some outstanding custom boxes and portfolios for our clients.
It would be our privilege to work with you in the conservation of your autographs or rare books. Inquiries welcome.
