Restorations & Replicas
Petrov Frame Atelier is one of the very few places in the country that would take on a project of this scale and complexity. It’s just part of what we do.
This beautiful hand carved Florentine frame was hanging in a prominent downtown Indianapolis home, when one day, the hanging wire broke and this magnificent frame fell onto the fireplace mantle, then to the hardwood floor. What you see are the remaining pieces.
To get this masterpiece back to it’s original beauty, Anatoly and his team completely restored the salvageable parts and pieces. For parts that were not recoverable, new pieces were re-carved by hand. Once back to it’s beautiful solid structure, 23k gold leaf was applied in the traditional gilding process over the entire frame's surface.
After gilding, the bright gold was antiqued, and finally everything re-assembled.
We have the knowledge and talent to tackle restorations of this magnitude. It took many hours, a team, tools and talent , but fortunately Indianapolis has all at Petrov Frame Atelier.
Stop by our shop to see this restored beauty!
This is an example of what Petrov Frame Atelier can do when it comes to reproduction frame making.
This piece sits in a boardroom with many other framed portraits, all having identical frames that are no longer available for sale. It was important to the client for all the frames to match, and that's where an expert like Anatoly Petrov comes in. We can create an exact replica frame honoring the latest edition to the boardroom...It's just what we do.
