    started a 17- early 1800's desk & chair cleaning

    And french polishing
    My X cleaner is an awesome formula for this. Inlay-paint , original finish and dirt, paint splatters this will be beautiful.

    Lower half is cleaned.

    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.

    Holy Moly.

    So whats the protocol on a piece like this.

    I've always heard you don't want to do to much to something like that to ruin the patina or value.

    I know you know the ropes, so what's the deal?

    Brent is highly exceptable . Conservation and the preservation of a piece like this keeps the gallery presence. Saving the original finish from breaking down.
