Wheathills Restore Antique Furniture
For Dealing With Dickinson - Page 3
the chair frames are complete, Nigel discusses the
options available to the team with John the Upholsterer.
It was decided that the best plan of action was to
conserve as much of the original seat as possible,
re-sew and plump up each seat.
Traditionally the seats
would have had a sewn edge, however, it became apparent
that previous restorers had applied a wooden side
to the seat to replicate a hand-sewn edging.
It was decided by the team due to the restrictions
of cost and limited time, to refit the existing pads
to the wooden sides.
This is a beatiful
set of chairs and is now in excellent condition, fit
to grace any high quality Antiques Fair. The chairs
are in the calico stage in readiness for their final
you for your excellent work carried out on the Antiques
selected for my forthcoming BBC television programme.
The restoration was sympathetic and I was very pleased
with the results."
