In the middle of February, we took a look at a piece of Hollywood history in the Perry Panel, getting started simply by getting the sizeable Tiffany panel into our home workshop and into the queue for examination and estimation. When we were obliged to take a break from another project we’ve got in progress at the moment, we had a chance to take a look at the panel and get a sense for what all needs fixing on it. And, as it happens, there’s quite a bit.
We’re lucky that the bones of the panel are good. The framing seems sound, and there’s a lot of glass that’s in good shape. There are also many places where we might incorporate some stronger structural elements, enhancing the panel’s stability while maintaining its appearance. But there’s a lot that…needs some work, and some of it’s in places that will require a lot of disassembly to get to. But we always do love a challenge, and it’s always a pleasure to restore beautiful pieces to glory!
We’ll keep you posted as we work through this piece, the Turner Transom, and other work we have in the queue right now. If you’d like your work to join them, give us a call at 830-890-1509 or send us a message through the contact form below; we’d love to visit with you!
