Hans Wegner Drop Leaf Scissor Leg Table

A client in Manhattan asked us to restore this iconic Hans Wegner scissor leg table. She was fortunate enough to inherit this table from her parents, but it is need of conservation after many years of use. The top edge of one of the drop leaves was dry and cracked and her builder tried to help by putting two nails in the piece. One of our first steps in the conservation of the piece is to remove these nails and properly repair the area. We will then chemically remove the existing finish, repair stains and scratches and finally oil and hand wax the table.
