February update. The last of a set of thirty four 19th century turned oak dining chairs were completed for one of the Cambridge Colleges. They required extensive frame repairs and repolishing before reupholstering them with superb leather seats. At other Cambridge Colleges we have restored a very nice mahogany library table, housed in a splendid library; repaired an unusual carved American low dresser with marble top; restored a nicely proportioned George III mahogany bureau; replaced a section of 17th century linen fold panelling…

Away from the University, we have had quite a range of work, from replacing worn out wooden threads and broken turnery, to oil gilding, seat weaving, desk leathers and lengths of brass moulding to replace…

What Client’s Say


For many years Andrew and Mark have helped me to identify antiques in sale rooms that are good value and genuine and then repaired them as necessary to a very high standard indeed. I have always been delighted with their excellent advice and workmanship. They have also made some wonderful reproduction pieces that have been very much admired by my friends. I am delighted to commend them unreservedly.

I am keen to recommend Andrew & Mark. In my experience good restorers are thin on the ground. Andrew & Mark understand how antique furniture was made and have a sympathy and talent to restore it.
Jess Applin, Applin Antiques
Having acquired a George III desk by Gillows in need of major restoration, I was recommended Mark and Andrew to bring it back to life. They did a first rate job worthy of the Gillows workshops.

If restoration workshops were garages Andrew and Mark’s would be for Formula 1.

We first met Andrew and Mark in 2003 and have come to know their work well. They have undertaken a diverse range of projects for us including antique repairs, design and manufacture of original work, and help in finding antiques.

They seem to know instinctively what is required. We confidently leave each item in their hands and have always been delighted by the sympathetic and very professional results. It has always been a pleasure to do business with them and we look forward to the next time.

I first came across Andrew and Mark in London a few years before they opened their own workshop. They’ve been of great help to me building and maintaining my antique furniture collection. I have the highest regard for their craftsmanship, integrity and honest judgement.
