This antique carousel horse was brought to Trefler’s as part of a larger fire claim which included an incredible private collection of fine and decorative artworks. The capabilities of our full-service studio, coupled with the trained hands of our skilled restorers, allowed our team to address damage to the wide array of objects, antiques and artworks that were affected by this unanticipated and unfortunate event.
The restoration process included treatment in our Ozone chamber to remediate damage caused from extensive exposure to smoke and soot. After a thorough cleaning this ornate horse was stripped and refinished to match the original color and patina of the wood; preserving the unique signs of age of this antique.
Additionally, portions of the horse that suffered more extensive damage were treated by filling, sanding and faux painting where detail was lost. Other structural repairs included reversing damage left behind by previous failed repairs, such as re-assembling and securely re-attaching the horse’s tail and left leg.
