Chippendale

We have had the opportunity to conserve a grouping of very old antique Chippendale chairs a client of ours inherited from her family in England.  The client had six chairs, comprised of two chairs each in 3 different styles. The chairs were lovely, but over time, the joints had become loose and there were numerous areas where the pieces had either cracked or broken completely.  In addition, there had been repairs made in the past, that were poorly done and needed to be reversed before we could begin our conservation. As part of our conservation, we disassembled the chairs, cleaned the joints and made all necessary repairs. All the repairs were done according to the ethics of conservation, and conducted in a reversible manner. The chairs were finished with a French polish, which really brought out the wonderful patina of the wood.
