“If you don’t want to commit to having it restored, we’ll happily acquire it from you.”
This sentiment was bluntly stated to our client the day they brought this Antique Games Table into our showroom. Very rarely do we collectively gush of a piece of furniture, however this piece warranted it.
Originally built in the 1830s, it took us over 50 hours to fully restore and refinish this table. The most difficult and time-consuming task was to secure the existing chessboard veneer and replace any missing pieces. We also had to repair the drop leaves and rule joints, and restore the table stringing prior to refinishing.
We were ultimately sad to see this item depart our premises, however it is a cherished family heirloom and the intention is for it to remain that way for generations to come.
