Textile Conservator
Greater Harrisburg / Gettysburg, PA

Leading antiques dealer, who also operates a very busy textile conservation business, seeks full-time, on-site, textile conservator. Applicants should have a master's degree in art conservation with an emphasis in textiles and should be highly skilled at sewing and exceptional at color matching. Persons with a strong background in painting preferred for creating underlay patches behind printed textiles with loss. This is an on-site position with daytime hours, but with a limited amount of occasional overtime and weekends.

We are the largest dealers in antique flags and for going on 18 years have framed literally thousands of examples. We stock about 2,500 flags, mostly 19th century, so much of our work is to conserve and frame our own material, but we also take on outside work for private collectors, museums and various non-profit organizations.

While not precisely in the museum field, we do bridge into it with some regularity. Jeff sells to museums and performs pro-bono appraisals for museum-to-museum loans. He manages extensive private collections and as a part of this has curated several museum exhibitions.

In our own work, with regards to selling, we have exhibited at more than 1,200 antique shows.

This position offers competitive pay, based upon experience, health insurance, paid vacation time (after 6 months) and paid holidays. We are not interested in off-site contract work. This is an on-site position. Located in the greater Gettysburg/Harrisburg area of South-Central Pennsylvania (USA). Contact Jeff Bridgman at (717) 502-1281 or email us at
