French Polishing

Sunnyside Antiques specialises in traditional hand French polishing which is the process of applying shellac dissolved in methylated spirit. As furniture restorers and French polishers of mostly antique pieces, we pay close attention to patina & value. Here are a few examples of our work.
When dealing with a piece of significant value or rarity, it is important that great attention is paid to the original workmanship, timber and patina whilst conserving as much of the original work and preserving as much character and value as possible.  Therefore, a full understanding of the client's requirements are critical in getting a balance of differing and sympathetic approaches in order to achieve the correct and desired outcome.
