2004 Best Art Repair

Trefler & Sons

The 20-plus artists employed by this low-profile, 83-year-old, family-owned company repair some 20,000 cracked, shattered, faded, worn, or burned objets d’art per year for clients from around the world. The talented group can fix or restore just about anything, from furniture and paintings, frames and glass, to ivory, jade, metals, and marble. No job is too challenging, no repair too trivial. And when your favorite piece is ready, it will shine as brilliantly as when it was created.
