Christening Outfit from 1800′s

Hello:

I have a heirloom Christening Outfit from a wealthy French family from the 1800′s.  My 2 children were christened in it approximately 30 years ago.  since then, I’ve kept it in a box with tissue paper.  My grandchildren are being born now and I would like to have it cleaned and then framed.

It is beautiful ecru lace with a petticoat and a winter coat.  Do you have any idea who I can take this delicate item to in New York City area?

Thank you.

    Hi Mary Ann,

    I did some research a few months ago and found a company that knows what they are doing regarding restoration and garment care. Try Meurice Garment Care in New York City. Their web site is http://www.garmentcare.com/

    Please let us know how they work out for you.
