Our workshop is fully equipped to carry out all repairs. We use time tested techniques to ensure your furniture remains functional. We use modern & traditional glues. Hide glue is only used with antique furniture. Apart from it's high strength it is also fully reversible.
Fire, Water, & Moving Damage
Antique Conservation is the company of choice for many insurance and moving companies. With the minimum of fuss we will have your furniture returned to its pre-damaged condition.
Missing parts can be replaced by duplicating an existing part, or we can copy them from a photo. We have an extensive stock of old timber to ensure as close a match to the original as possible.
The Secretaire Campaign Chest pictured
on the left was restored by us on behalf of
Lanyon Homestead, where it now resides.
The following pictures are to give you an example of the type of repair work we regularly carry out.
The above photos show damage to the side of the Campaign Chest. A selected peice of timber with matching grain was cut to size, placed over the damaged area & the section to be removed traced out.
The above photos show the timber patches in place receiving an application of coloured grain filler.
The above photos show the patches after being stained & sealed with shellac. The photo on the right shows the completed repair.
