San Francisco repair for Demetre Chiparus marble/bronze status : LUSENET : Art Deco Society of Washington : One Thread

I am dealing with a Demetre Chiparus Came Romania Shepherdess statue that is bronze and ivory on a marble base with 3 deer and a shepherd girl (signed by Chiparus on base). Two deer came loose and one has a broken leg.

Does anyone know a San Francisco-based firm that can make repairs to a Chiparus? Will it affect the appraised value?

Dear Greg,

I have twenty-five years of experience in art conservation and have restored many important bronze-ivory sculptures by Chiparus. Proper restoration prevents further deterioration and improves the appearance of the object. When restoration is done in accordance with professional standards, it will significantly enhance the beauty and the value of the artwork. Good luck, Regards, Irene
