|This mirror was hanging on the wall for a bout a year. Finally stripped paint last month.|
|Now the structural repair begins|
I saw an oval potrait like the one below while previewing an auction. Then remembered I had one just like it in storage waiting for a repair. Now I'll put this in the queue.
|As often happens, edges suffer losses on these ovals|
Not the most extraordinary example, but the reverse painting was intact, the surface of the frame oxidized/aged but not over-painted. Corner elements need repair, but this is usually one of the simplest types of repairs. Currently hanging by the laundry room as a constant reproach. This could be its time!
|All right, all right. I'll get to it.|
