Since 1989 Newmans, Ltd has been at the forefront of high quality art restoration in New England, nationally and internationally. We began with our first specialty, metal objects, and rapidly expanded to Non-Western ethnographic objects of mixed materials and to marble and stone busts and other statuary. Our projects range from small, delicate bronze statuary and unusual metal objects to large institutional installations.  Below are many of our projects, by category. We hope you enjoy looking through our work, and will contact us with your own restoration challenges.
