Looking after family and personal treasures carries with it responsibilities of care. You want to pass them on in good condition.
At Petone Frameworks, we ensure that the mounting techniques used are reversible, and we take great care to avoid marking or damage. Items can be retrieved from their mounting undamaged.
Conservation and protection is a science and we enjoy the challenges some of the more unusual objects raise.
