Restoring and recreating with utmost precision
Historical reproduction consists in recreating a historically accurate condition for an excessively damaged item if the décor has physically disappeared, for instance, but can still be recreated thanks to surviving documents. For such tasks, we ask the very best manufacturers to recreate ancient fabrics and trimmings. Our experience often contributes precious information to research done by conservators who are trying to restore a décor or a harmonious set of furniture items. Examples of such restitutions, many of which were initiated by Jacques Brazet, can be found in the Music Room in the castle of Compiègne, in the sovereign “Grands Appartements” un the castle of Fontainebleau, and in the castle of Malmaison’s Council Chambers.
