Tiffany Frame Restoration

Tiffany Studios New York, Stamped ‘940’

This beautiful petite “Tiffany” picture frame (or calendar card holder) came to us from a client out of Clarksburg, Virginia.

The frame had two broken green glass panels. Our challenge was to remove the panels without damaging the patina, or compromise the integrity and art of this “Tiffany” piece.

Very carefully, we cut the frame apart with a ‘jewelers’ hack saw. This step in the repairs was meticulous, and time consuming. We had to be extremely careful, as we were going into the unknown while taking the frame apart. After taking it apart, we slid the the broken glass out. We then had to fit the new glass panels in, by hand shaving the glass with a stone for a perfect fit.

After fitting the glass panels in, we soldered the frame back together and added a patina to match the current patina. This assured the repairs would be undetectable, as if it were never repaired.
