The practice collaborates frequently with Alexander George Ley and Son in the conservation of frames and also in the making of reproduction frames for paintings.

A digital montage can be made with a photograph of the painting and several appropriate frame possibilities are selected from their large database of frames. The resulting proposals can then be sent to the client for approval.
