|The Restored Pier Table|
The condition of this piece was pretty good overall, but there was significant damage to the finish on the ebonized top and the Mahogany sections had a cracked and tired finish, the gilt and ebonized portions on the base had flaked off revealing the Mahogany wood beneath. Structurally, the table needed little work and it only had minor cosmetic damage. Here is a photo of the table as it came to me.
Now back to the restoration. Below is a photo of the table with the finish removed and the surface sanded and prepped for a new finish.
This last photo shows the completed piece with the hardware attached and ready for delivery.
