Work in progress: following stabilization of the wooden structure
and the consolidation of the gesso and paint layers, we restored
the missing wooden fragments.  Our lab developed customized
material to compensate missing wood for the fragments   The
fragments were then covered with gesso, and following the
removal of excess gesso, we prepared the surface for in-painting.   
Work in progress: the above photographs was
taken during the treatment of rebuilding wooden

FRAME  CONSERVATION - RESTORATION
This frame is one of many examples of similar objects treated in our
lab.  In this case we started by consolidating of the gesso and gold
leaves. Then compensated the missing molding, using carving
techniques, and replaced gesso.  The work was finished off with
gilding the compensated fragments and in-painting the frame.
