About Eli

ECR Antique Conservation & Restoration Inc. was established in 1989.  Professor Eli Rios, Owner and Principal Conservator, has amassed more than 30 years of experience and is considered one of the country’s leading experts in fine antique conservation and restoration.  With clients, ranging from the Keno Brothers to Martha Stewart to Sotheby’s and Christie’s Auction Houses and Private Collectors’.  Professor Rios is an expert in a vast array of historic materials and conservative and restorative techniques.

Recently five reputable New York antique dealers closed, all of which relied on ECR Restoration to revive and care for their furniture. Those services are still available to you. Over many years ECR developed a matchless reputation for understanding and restoring everything from mirrors and chairs to tables and tea caddies. Follow long-time antique dealers, decorators, and museums to a quality conservation service. Trust your historic or modern pieces to master craftsmen for proper cleaning, mending, and polishing. Use a company that appreciates the beauty of wood and the preciousness of family pieces.
