    Rancho Mirage Furniture Repair by Museum Quality Restoration Services

    Rancho Mirage furniture repair of dining chairs, with custom water-spotted lacquer finish. Chair frames were cracked at the rear joints, and some at front leg joints.  Dings, splits and dents had to be repaired, filled, smoothed and touched up. Here is the transcript of the review of Museum Quality Restoration Services written by this satisfied client:

    “Mark, thank you for the professional touch up on the finishes of my six dining rm chairs. Each chair had a variety of scrapes/nicks on the legs/backs. I realize such a multi step lacquer finish is most difficult to restore. You did a great job.  They look brand new.  I know it took days as each layer needs to dry before the next can be applied. Plus the damage was random, different on each chair. Appreciate your patience. You have an unique skill.  Feel free to use me as a reference”  –  Best regards, Roy Jenks, Rancho Mirage, CA.

    Vintage 1950’s Neon Clock Restoration

    Indian Wells antique restoration by Museum Quality Restoration Services

    This Indian Wells antique restoration was a comprehensive restoration and repair project.  A vintage neon wall-clock from the mid-century modern era, this clock had tremendous sentimental value to the client.  My client wrote me this review as a letter of appreciation for the finished work:

    I had an old wall clock, 65-years old.  It belonged to my father and hung on the wall of his shoe store for 35 years.  It had great sentimental value to me.  Unfortunately, it had moved several times and been in storage.  It was badly beaten up.  The glass was broken, hands bent, parchment type of lettering torn.  The only thing that worked was a neon bulb.  Mark Fry of Museum Quality Restoration was able to take the clock apart and restore the clock without touching the neon.  The glass was replaced, hands were replaced, but the most difficult was the translucent lettering from the 1950’s.   Mark detailed out several templates until he was able to reproduce an exact replica of “translucent” lettering.  He allowed the neon to shine through beautifully.  Now the clock hangs in my office and I look at the same time my father looked at 65 years ago.  Thank you Mark Fry.
