This 1920's Master Farriers' Union price list was in a very bad way when it came to us - with bits missing and the paper torn and crumpled. Having been left in a garage for years it needed some love.
Rather than restoring it to its original condition our customer wanted to retain the feeling of its history - and in our opinion this was a great decision.
Before mounting it onto a piece of conservation mount board we pieced it back together as much as was possible, then carefully flattened it. By mounting onto a board which is almost the same colour as the poster we have reduced the impact of the tears and missing parts.
A deep bevelled mount holds the glass away from the poster. We then glazed it using ArtGlass which will protect it from UV light, reduce reflection and give crystal clear vision of the writing through the glass.
Finished in a solid wood matt black frame it is looking fantastic and is preserved for our customer to enjoy for many years to come.
