Art Restoration and Preservation Services
Since 1978, the Conservators of Old World Restorations have been restoring the original beauty to
damaged and deteriorated art and antiques of all types, including; paintings, frames, ceramics,
glass, sculpture, documents, prints, photographs, metals and more.
We have grown from a small studio in Terrace Park, Ohio, into nearly twenty thousand square feet
of updated, secure and well equipped, studio, office and storage space in one of Cincinnati’s oldest
buildings, the Historic Joseph Ferris House built in 1807 is located just east of downtown Cincinnati
Our staff, with over 150 years of combined conservation experience, has earned the trust of art
collectors, museums, galleries, dealers, individuals, institutions and insurance companies worldwide
to restore and preserve their treasures, using sensitive and reversible techniques that do not alter
or further harm the original artists' work. We believe that this sensitivity and attention to detail
is the hallmark of quality art restoration and conservation. Whether you have a fine painting, broken
figurine, or cherished family photograph, Old World Restorations can help to preserve them for
We provide pre-treatment examinations and detailed cost estimates, with restoration options that range
from basic repairs and cleaning, to complete restorations that are invisible to the naked eye. Our fees
are affordable and based on the time and materials required to complete each project.
Whether you have a single item or an entire collection, we welcome the opportunity to be your source
for quality Art Restoration and Conservation, Collection Surveys, Conservation Framing, Insurance
Claims and Consultations.
Getting a quote is easy. We will need to inspect each item to provide treatment options and quotes.
However, we are able to provide preliminary estimates from detailed descriptions and clear photographs
that allow us to see the entire item, as well as all damage and previous repairs. Use our “Request a Quote”
form or pack and ship items to our Cincinnati conservation studio.
Conservators are available to inspect items and provide quotes by appointment in our studio or your home or office.
