Restored Mirror Frame

#1, A sadly broken frame.  With so many small broken pieces, we had to start from scratch.

#2, The mold we made so that we could exactly re-create the scroll work.  We put this mold over a wooden base for stability.

#3,  The new scroll work has been attached to the frame, now it needs a very skilled hand to match the color work.

#4  The frame is done!  Looking at it now, no one would ever guess that it had been broken.  The new scrollwork matches seamlessly with the original frame.  Each frame we restore here at the shop has it's own problems needs it's own special approach.  But we love a challenge and are so happy with how this challenge came out.
