Veneers can sometimes be tricky to repair due to thickness. If a veneer has been badly damaged and needs replacing or part replacement part the fun can be locating the timber to match the existing. In a period piece of furniture this can bring issues. At Sunnyside Antiques we are constantly purchasing and acquiring what we term as’ breakers’ pieces that can yield useful timber and fixings to match the date, timber and grain of the antique piece requiring restoration. If you have an old piece of furniture which is sadly passed its best and might be making its way to the fire why not contact us.

Below is a beautiful Victorian Sutherland table which came to us in a very sorry state. With extensive damage to the veneers some sections lifting, bubbled and even missing! The missing veneers supplied by a salvaged item of furniture from the same period. Once all the timber repairs had taken place we prepare the table for French polishing. Care was taken to ensure the new French polish and colour matched with the old patina.
Below are a few examples, however we always recommend a visit to our showroom and workshop.
