French Polishing and Restoration

We provide a traditional French polishing and restoration service for antique snooker and billiards tables, antique furniture, and pianos. We believe that the retention of the patina and character of each piece is paramount.

Mark Brown has 40 years’ experience in traditional French polishing and antique furniture restoration, and will personally ensure all work is carried out to the high standard our customers have come to expect. 

Antique Furniture and Pianos

We use a sympathetic approach to restore and French polish your antique furniture or piano.

Your antique furniture will be carefully repaired if necessary, restored by our small team of experienced craftsmen, and re-polished by hand. Each piece is restored using repairs and materials in keeping with the period.

For French polishing, we always use traditional hand polishing techniques, coupled with the best quality natural oils, waxes and shellacs available.

All work is sympathetically carried out, preserving the character and patina of each piece. 

Please contact us to discuss your requirements and get an idea of price. We are happy to advise on the most suitable finish for your furniture.
