This required extensive work as it had been stored for many years. The front to the secretaire section had the bottom half of the front missing. The old polish was damaged and perished and easily damaged. The writing skiver had split and was torn. All the drawer runners were badly worn. There were several large sections of timber missing from the bottom side edges of the top section.
The cabinet was stripped and refinished. The missing part of the front to the secretaire was replaced and carefully adjusted with rebates to allow it to open and lay flat. A new tooled skiver sourced and fitted. All the drawers were removed and the drawer runners replaced. The brass work was polished.
