As a painter of miniatures himself, Tim Dolby is an expert with an artist’s understanding of the problems and delicate nature of the restoration of miniature paintings.
Examples of Tim’s work include painted or gilded clock faces, Georgian profile miniatures, objets d’art and antique picture frames, and as a noted painter of miniatures, his expertise in restoring and cleaning this particular genre is second to none.
- Tarnished or damaged gold and silver leaf can be restored and toned to match the original.
