antique art restoration
Denver Zoo Carousel Sign
Location: Denver, CO
Client: Denver Zoo
Scope: These signs for the Denver Zoo Carousel had faded and deteriorated over time and needed extensive body work, a new paint job and a new gild of 23k gold. Restoration not only preserved both sign's original character but also extended their lifespan, ensuring that future patrons to the zoo can enjoy them.
Each sign restoration project is unique, and the techniques applied depend on the sign's materials, condition, historical significance, and the desired outcome
While new signs have their place, the benefits of restoring a sign, especially when it carries historical or emotional value, can be significant. It not only helps preserve heritage but also provides a cost-effective and sustainable approach to signage.
