Framing and Conservation


Whether you are a consignor or a purchaser, Heffel offers guidance and in-house service for framing your works of art. Attractive, suitable and well-made frames will not only enhance the saleability of your works of art if you are a consignor but will also increase your enjoyment of your collection while protecting works from potential damage.

Bob Ma

Bob Ma, of our Vancouver office, is an expert craftsman of long experience who can be trusted to assist you in choosing the perfect frame to compliment your paintings and works on paper. His department stocks a multitude of frame mouldings and archival matting from which to choose.

Bob also advises our clients on the viability of restoring damaged frames and the reproduction of frames in period styles to suit particular historic works.

He can also be relied on to provide attractive and secure mounting for both standing and relief sculpture.

Please feel free to contact any of our offices to assist you with your framing requirements.


As with any collectible item or other real property, maintaining value and saleability depends very much on the good condition of the work. Often a light surface cleaning will refresh a work and reveal details long hidden.

Our experienced staff has been trained to carefully examine your works of art and to advise you about having works cleaned or repaired.

Working with a trusted group of expert conservators located in Vancouver, Toronto and Montreal, we are prepared to offer well-considered advice about your conservation requirements and to guide you to the best results.

You can be assured that Heffel will hold your inquiries and concerns in the strictest confidence.
