IRecently, I was approached with a challenge of 'fixing up' an antique framed mirror which had been passed down through the family and diplayed at the weddings of each elder son, an Iranian tradition I believe. However, it had resided in Canada for some years and had not survived the climate so well. It was shipped to me from Canada for restoration, repair and reguilding in time for the elder son to be married here in Sydney. It came up splendidly! So much so his Mother could not remember it ever looking so grand and beautiful. It was a worthwhile investment for this family to keep it 'in' the family and keep the tradition going by being a good custodian of the framed mirror. The work carried out would also have increased it's value as a collectable.
