Clothing & Memorabilia - sporting jerserys, caps, shirts, ribbons
Medals & Badges (war items, sporting)
Restoration & Conservation
Quite often an old frame has many memories. Frames can be cleaned and minor repairs made - add a new matboard finish and your old image has a new life for many years to come.
Picture frames - whether factory-made, or custom made - can be more complex than they might first appear. They can be constructed out of a variety of different parts that can suffer damage over time.
This damage can occur from improper handling and storage; from accidents, falling from a wall or being dropped during transport; or simply from routine wear and tear over the decades.
Australiana Picture Frames can provide solutions for restoration and conservation of your precious items.
A sad old print in poor condition - frame was grubby, backing materials weathered and falling apart. The customer's desire was to keep it as original as possible.
The work was completely dismantled and cleaned. Original glass replaced and new conservation friendly backing board was added. The result was stunning.
An original French Provincial oil painting under goes a complete makeover. Dated heavy timber frame removed, image cleaned of dust and grime (all care taken not to damage the surfaces) and new mats and frame selected.
We offer a quality and creative product at a very affordable cost.
