    The Haywards’ of Palm Desert Antique Collection Restored

    I restored this collection of beautiful antiques for a Palm Desert couple, the pieces are French and Italian and from the 17th and 18th Centuries.  Mr Hayward wrote me this letter recommending my services:

    “Since we moved to Palm Desert 7 years ago Mark Fry has repaired, restored and rebuilt for us a number of furniture pieces and personal possessions. These were shipped from both New York and France and considerable damage was done in transit. The extensive work performed by Mark went from rebuilding and refinishing large pieces of furniture to repairing a badly damaged 200 year old clock. All of this work was very well done and where insurance applied his charges were accepted by the insurance company. I do not hesitate to recommend him for your favorable consideration” – T. Holt Haywood

    Indian Wells antique restoration

    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.

    Trunk Restored and Lined with Cedar By Museum Quality

    Restoration of an antique trunk (chest).  This trunk was stripped of old paint and the wooden finish was restored.  A new cedar lining was also fitted – cedar wood is repellant to moths and the new lining would make the trunk a perfect storage chest for heirloom textile items such as linens and woolens.  Please click through the gallery below, larger images will appear when thumbnails are clicked.
