French Polishing Services
Here at Cotswolds Furniture Restoration are specialists in all French Polishing Services.
French polishing is a varnishing technique that can help to create a layered coat over any wooden surface. This coat of polish leaves a glossy finish on the surface, emboldening colours and creating a chatoyant design. At Cotswolds Furniture Restoration in Gloucestershire, we are expert French polishers who particularly specialise in antique furniture, but can also complete any French polishing on any wood surface.
French polishing has been around for several centuries, but rapidly gained popularity in the 18th Century. During the Victorian period in the 19th century, French polishing became the standard finishing practice for any rich, wooden surfaces - particularly ones made from mahogany and other expensive timber - including furniture and musical instruments.
While more contemporary and convenient polishing techniques now exist, French polishing remains a popular finish for many wooden objects. This is perhaps down to the fact that modern polishing techniques are often done using special machinery, whereas, French polishing requires a tender human touch to apply the polish. This means more time and care is put into any French polishing project and no two items are the same. At Cotswolds Furniture Restoration, we believe that the manual aspect of French polishing means that each piece of furniture has its own personality; built up by the layers of varnish painstakingly applied, often over several hours.
