Owner Ron Fromkin
The Japanese Repository has been
established since 1991 and specializes in ivory repair and
restoration work to the trade and private parties, using genuine
ivory materials. Missing or broken parts are hand carved in ivory
and securely attached to the object. Whenever possible, repairs are
made with ivory matching the original in color and density and
finish. I also work in bone, wood, antler and horn. I have extensive
experience in restoration and repairs to the following items:
Netsuke- ivory, wood, antler.
Chinese ivories of all types, including polychrome stain and painted surfaces.
Indian and Goa style carving.
European Ivory pieces.
Chess sets, repair and fabrication, ivory, bone, wood, turned and figural.
Napoleonic Prisoner of war bone carvings.
Canes and walking sticks.
Small inlay work- bone, wood, ivory and other natural materials.
Wood carving- small items only, missing parts, cracks, damage, inlay.
Lathe turning in bone, ivory and wood for chess pieces, knobs, Finials, and bun feet for boxes and tea caddies.
Snuff bottle repairs- Tops in ivory and other materials, cork stoppers and spoons in bone and ivory.
