Q: How do I obtain conservation services?
Step 1: The first step in the conservation process is assessing the object’s current condition.
Examination of your objects can be done both on-site or in our conservation studio.
Step 2: A condition report is prepared outlining the object’s current condition.
Step 3: A treatment proposal is submitted outlining our recommendations for treatment. The treatment proposal becomes a contract outlining what work is to be performed and the associated fees.

Step 5: Transportation of your pieces can be arranged through our shippers or by the shipper of your choice.

Step 3. A detailed contract along with scaled drawings must be approved before construction begins.
Q: Why commission Fallon & Wilkinson, LLC to build a reproduction?
A: We bring a three-fold approach to the process that our competition does not. First, we have the hand skills to build an exact copy.

Finally, our training at the Smithsonian Institution exposed us to some of the greatest collections of furniture in the world.
