A variety of treatments are available to customers based on their preservation preference; conservation or restoration. Each item is evaluated for its condition. We develop a preservation strategy to meet private collectors’ needs along with a cost proposal.

Insurance estimates and recovery work is done in-house and appraisals can be arranged.
