Antique restoration services

Do you need to have the lustre and value of your antiques restored? We at ArtCase can help with our antique restoration services.

We have 4 decades of experience behind us and in those 4 decades we have completed many restoration projects ranging from the complete restoration of a 17th century house to the restoring of Steinway pianos.

In our many years in this field,we have learned that each antique is like a being, they have a history and story that that can be easily obliterated by an unskilled restorer. Should this uniqueness be lost, the value of the antique is diminished and it becomes generic.  Through this attitude of treating antiques like unique individuals rather than objects, we have been lucky enough to secure restorations from many famous Antique houses and dealers, as well as  over 650 pianos, and some notable Landmark  buildings in Europe and America.

We have made a list detailing most of our services, to the left in the navigation menu,  but some things we have done defy neat categorisation, for example turning an 18th century barn into flooring and shelving at a luxury residence. In addition we have also listed a few of the names and companies for whom we work and have worked in the past.
