Antique English Chairs with Caning in for Restoration

Six chairs dating back to 1815 came in with compromised caning, poor wood condition, loose joinery, and deep-seated dirt.

The caning was completely replaced, a slow process that was done with the technique that was originally used to make them. Careful cleaning along all of the wood including hydration to strengthen was carried out. At the joinery, a restorer’s adhesive was incorporated to return integrity and further conditioning was applied to the wood.
