Another helpful lot if you erm, well, need some ano. Chris Smith Restoration
, Unit 3 Saxon Works, Olive Road, Hove, East Sussex BN3 5LE - 01273 420024 - business card link
Chris Smith Restorations is a fantastic place, the sort of business that perhaps once existed in every high street in the country at one time, an Aladin's Cave of curios, from torpedos, to candelabras, to minature cannons that fire shotgun cartirdges, the air thick with the smell of freshly polished brass and cutting fluid.
I left the frame, not expecting too much, but sure enough a couple of weeks later when I phoned they were surprised I hadn't been earlier to collect. The cost was a paltry £10, I can't recommend them highly enough.
