About Us

Established in 1983, we specialise in traditional hand French polishing, using both traditional and modern finishing materials to achieve the best possible results, with the colour and depth of finish from the old and the improved heat and sunlight resistance of the new.


By working in conjunction with Cabinet Makers, Upholsterers and other independent craftsmen, we are able to offer a complete furniture restoration service.
