Until their proper display in museums, the paintings of most Renaissance masters languished for centuries on the magnet-flecked fridges of their proud mothers. Preserve your art for future generations and houseguests with today's Groupon: for $55, you get $125 worth of custom-framing services at Renaissance Framing Gallery in Cambridge.

Renaissance Framing Gallery revivifies worn art and frames using careful, artisanal restoration techniques. Employ skilled framesmiths to enshrine a memory-encrusted jersey ($250+) or diploma ($115+), or have them carefully restore an 8"x10" oil painting ($150) or the gold-leaf frame surrounding it ($85 per hour including materials). Before and after photos show how restoration services make the Dark Ages skies brighter, Victorian skin alabastier, and dramatic gilds more dramatically gilt.

The on-site experts scrub up gold-leaf frames and restore paper and canvas, turning lovely wall hangings into precious heirlooms. Installation services are also available for those preferring others' do-it-yourself methods.

All framing services are performed on the premises by Armenian-born restoration expert Levon Tokatlyan, who has 35 years of experience giving face-lifts to geriatric masterworks. His formidable frameworking skills have been utilized by Harvard University's Fogg Museum, Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, and Old South Church.
