RESTORATION OF CIVIL WAR DOCUMENT SIGNED BY PRESIDENT LINCOLN
A Civil War US Navy Captains Commission signed by President Lincoln was sent to our studio in dire need of restoration. The document was mounted in a cheap frame with broken glass and over the years the velum on which document was printed and written became warped and infested by mold and mildew.
Note from the client:
I just felt compelled to write to you and let you know what a great experience working with you and your company was.
I have a Navy Commission letter signed by President Lincoln. It is on velum which from what I understand is a difficult thing to work with. Needless to say it had seen its better days. I purchased it in a broken frame and glass with a ton of wrinkles in it.
I contacted several different companies, sent photos and my explanation of what I wished done. No one would touch it.
I came to you and you were more than willing to work with me. I can't say enough of how pleased I am with your performance in this.
It's not easy to trust someone you've never met with thousands of dollars worth of documents however you put me at ease and the final product was excellent.
