The goal of Upton Studios LLC is to preserve the past, in order to enrich the future . We strive to preserve and protect the knowledge afforded to ourselves, and to future generations through the documentation and preservation of the original finishes and technology .
We are not a refinishing company. We do not disturb
the finishes of artifacts purely for the sake of aesthetics.
We conserve and document original finishes where possible.
We stabilize metals from the effects of active corrosion and
seal them against further damage.
We recover finishes which have disappeared down into the surface of the metal after years of neglect.
We restore the appearance of the original finishes of ornamental
artifacts, to regenerate the ambiance of a given period.
When an object's form is as important as it's function,
much of it's historic value is found in it's appearance.
