Mobile: 07879428844



Workshop Address

31 Compton,



ST13 5NJ.


Please arrange an appointment to deliver/collect or look around the workshop.


My restoration workshop is located in Leek, Staffordshire, however, I accept work from all areas of the country.


To receive an estimate by email for restoring your antique mirror or picture frame etc-


1. Send a photo of the whole frame and some close up photos of the damaged area.


2. Let me know the height and width of the frame and whether you have any missing or broken-off pieces.


However, if your frame has been painted over I will need to examine the frame in the workshop, after removing the paint I will be able to assess how much gold is left and what the extent of the damage is. I will then be able to provide a more accurate estimate.
