“This much loved writing desk from the Biedermeier period was recently given to me following a family bereavement. Sadly it was in shocking condition, having for many years been moved around the world, as well as enduring many years in a poor storage facility. It was in such a sorry state, so much so that Mike was not able to tell me what type of wood it was made from. The quartered veneer was lifting, pieces had broken off and there was evidence of previous sub standard repair work.
“Mike carried out a superb repair and restoration job returning the piece to its former glory, revealing the wonderful patina of Rosewood. The writing desk is now handsome and fully functional thanks to Mike’s expert craftsmanship. I could not believe the transformation and would have no hesitation in entrusting Mike with any other restoration projects. Thank you Mike.”
