I am an Antique Furniture Restorer and Dealer. I have over 20 years experience restoring furniture from all levels be it £50,000 tables to £100 chests and on both sides of the globe having spent 6 years in Perth, Western Australia where I started and ran a very successful restoration business. I also restore and alter taxidermy, a quirkier part of my work.
I also provide a service to customers of giving antique appraisals for them on items of furniture they are interested in purchasing with emphasis on spotting fakes, copies, reproductions and what works the item has undergone in its history and a care and maintanence schedule. All items will be issued with a 'passport' if requested which states what work I have undertaken on their item and what materials and processes i've used.
Aside from the restoration I deal in good quality predominantly pre 1900 furniture and decorative items that take my fancy. I have a weakness for early English furniture and especially country chairs.
