We undertake all types of restoration from minor repairs to more major projects. We have a wealth of experience and knowledge and aim to return your antique back to you in a condition as close to original as possible.
With a full understanding of the importance of colour and patination our expert polishers are able to undertake all tasks from light cleaning, removing marks and stains to repolishing large dining tables or bookcases. We also offer an in-house waxing service where we can visit, professionally wax and attend to any minor repairs.
Working closely with clients we can attend to localised areas of damage or complete re-gilding (be it in water or oil gilding) a piece and are happy to advise accordingly throughout to ensure that you obtain the finish that you require.
Whether copying a chair to add to a set or making a one off special commission we are able to work to the highest standards and where required, colour and polish to match any existing pieces.
From small inset leathers to full size desk tops, we are able to offer the client a wide choice of colours and tooling finishes. Only best quality hides are used and our services also include supplying and fitting leather upholstery to chair seats.
Antique locks can be serviced and missing keys cut. We are able to replace missing mounts and galleries including matching or recasting handles using both modern and traditional lost wax or sand casting techniques.
Using only traditional methods and materials, The Collector Antiques are able to upholster to the highest standard with special attention being paid to the correct line. We are also happy to advise on suitable fabrics to suit a particular period or style. We also undertake cane work.
