We believe that by using long standing methods, although it is more time consuming, we are able to achieve an authenticated original finish. We professional hand finish using traditional methods by applying shellac using rubbers and mops, allowing time between coats to body up to a full mirror finish if required.
We use the minerals and chemicals of the period of the furniture to achieve the desired colour: i.e. Potassium Permanganate & Bichromate of Potash.
We are frequently called upon to remove white ring marks (Blooming) from top surfaces.
We use this skill when asked to put new extensions which have to match the existing wood in the table tops.
Professional Spray Lacquering
For modern furniture we have a spray booth which enables us to spray lacquer a durable finish in different sheens from 5% matt to 90% gloss.
