Bespoke French Polishing

Colin Blake runs our polishing shop, he has nearly 50 years of experience in colouring and polishing.

He apprenticed for Kempster pianos in Witney where he learned his craft and has worked at Ascott D’oilly for 25 years.

We have always run a stand alone polishing shop and specialised in French polishing, and all manner of antique and modern finishes, including colouring, specialist paint finishes, marbling and graining.

Antique polishing is a skillful complicated process, as much an art form as science.
