Albert Sack’s illustrious 73 year career as an American antique dealer, scholar and author is unrivalled. He has lectured extensively at museums, wrote numerous scholarly articles and has appraised collections such as: Henry F. DuPont Winterthur Museum, Art Institute of Chicago, Yale Gallery of Fine Art, Henry Ford Museum and the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
“I am offering an enthusiastic recommendation for Miguel Saco as an expert restorer and conservator of antique and fine furniture.
Mr. Saco was highly recommended to our firm by an associate dealer. At the time we had a masterpiece which required the most delicate restoration. The table had suffered neglect. The veneered rays of the top had lifted and were bent out of shape. An old decayed varnish had obscured the fine crotch veneer and sections of the crossbanding and inlay were missing.
Mr. Saco miraculously reset the veneer, conservatively lifted the varnish preserving the original patina and replaced the missing elements. The table is now in the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The restoration was completed in less than a month which was impressive.
Since that initial contact, we have given some of our most sensitive work to Mr. Saco. We find him highly competent, cooperative and of the highest integrity.”
