Owner Ron Fromkin

I am happy to announce the fabrication of REPRODUCTION Carton Pierre caskets for chess collectors. I am also providing complete rebuilding of original caskets. See the Carton Pierre tab for more information.  

Carton Pierre Casket


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.
Japanese Okimono.

Chinese ivories of all types, including polychrome stain and painted surfaces.
Indian and Goa style carving.
European Ivory pieces.
Ivory tankards.
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.
Black Forest wood carvings ( Bench top size, no big furniture pieces)
