Old World Restorations has long been recognized as a leading provider of exceptional art restoration and conservation services. Since 1978, the Cincinnati, Ohio based company has specialized in the treatment of damaged and deteriorated paintings, frames, prints, historic documents, photographs, works on paper, decorative objects, sculpture, ceramics and more.  The company has grown from a small studio in Terrace Park, Ohio, into nearly twenty thousand square feet of secure studio-office and storage space in one of Cincinnati’s oldest brick buildings. The Historic Ferris House was built by Joseph Ferris in 1807 and is located just eight miles east of downtown Cincinnati in Fairfax, Ohio.

What we do…

Our staff, with over 150 years of combined art restoration and conservation experience, has earned the trust of art collectors, museums, galleries, dealers, individuals, institutions and insurance companies nationwide to restore and preserve their art treasures, using only sensitive techniques and reversible materials that do not alter or further harm the artists original work. We believe that this sensitivity and attention to detail is the hallmark of quality restoration and conservation.

Whether you have a painting or a cherished family keepsake, Old World Restorations can help to restore and preserve it for future generations.

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, Museum Quality Conservation Picture Framing, Art Lighting, Art Damage Insurance Claim Estimates, Art Inspections and Consultations.

Getting a quote is easy.

We will need to inspect each item to provide treatment options and cost estimates. However, we are able to provide preliminary (non-binding) 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 for our inspection, recommendations and cost estimate. Or email details and images to info@oldworldrestorations.com.

Our Conservators are available to inspect items to provide recommendations and quotes by appointment in our studio, your home or office. Contact us at: (513) 271-5459.
