Restored Display Case Frames

This pair of antique display case carved frames were in a bad condition, coming apart at all corners and in general poor condition. The glazing is very thick 8mm plate glass, which makes the frames very heavy and puts a lot of stress on the corner joints. They have been fitted with new piano hinges (as the previous hinges were very small), new velvet, and have been joined at the corners with large screws, before being restored.
