Dutch Marquetry Armchair

This lovely armchair had been stored in a garage for many years before being brought in to me for restoration. The old upholstery was removed to discover evidence of old woodworm damage. This had weakened the left rail and destroyed the tenon joints. The front rail and legs were also detached. The surface finish was perished. The chair frame was consolidated and the left rail rebuilt and strengthened with new inset tenon joints. The whole frame was then glued up. The old surface was stripped away and it was then polished with shellac and waxed to finish. It was then upholstered with a ‘stuff over’ seat pad.
