Restoration services are widely represented in the antique market – recovery of paintings and frames, icons and icon cases, porcelain, and of course, jewellery. According to the goals and expected results, reconstruction can be divided into two large groups: conservation, designed to preserve the object in the form in which it has survived to this day, and recovery, aimed at returning the object to the state that was conceived by the author. The first option is typical for ancient museum exhibits preserved for the purpose of studying the culture and art of a certain historical period, as well as for identification. The second variant is typical for museum exhibits of a later origin and relatively well-preserved, as well as private collections of furniture.
Currently, there is a noticeable increase in demand for antique urban furniture. The owners of old dressers prefer to preserve the original lock instead of replacing it with a modern mechanism. As a rule, the old antique lock will require specific restoration work. After repair, the lock should not only preserve its historical and artistic value but also perform utilitarian functions. It becomes not only art or scientific activity, but by fulfilling orders from owners of antique furniture, it also turns into a furniture restoration service.
A lock restoration service is always a compromise. On the one hand, the locksmith is called upon to preserve the object in its natural form for future generations, on the other, to restore the lost functionality. The quality of repair work is of great importance, but the timing and cost are also factors. Many materials and technologies used in the 19th or 18th centuries are now rare and expensive. It is necessary to build an optimal plan, taking into account the possibilities and requirements of the customer to achieve the best results in the recovery of an old lock. At the same time, the locksmith must preserve the historical and artistic value, even if the object is supposed to be actively used. It is necessary to strictly observe the basic principles and to preserve as much as possible all available parts of the object, decor and decoration; to restore, not replace, use only reversible materials, think over each of the actions and save all information about the subject.
