Experienced French Polishing in South London

French polishing is a centuries-old technique that brings out the timeless beauty of wood. At Schryver Restoration, we consider it both a skill and an art form. Our craftsmen are skilled in the delicate process of French polishing, which involves applying multiple thin layers of shellac by hand. Our company has been providing these services for over 50 years, making us one of the most experienced companies in the field.

French polishing results in a glossy, shiny finish that highlights the grain patterns and textures of the wood surface. Whether it’s an antique piece with sentimental value or a modern wood surface in need of a fresh look, our French polishing service is designed to elevate wood to a work of art.

I have used the services of Schryver for over 25 years - in the process of selling over £30m of the finest antique and vintage furniture. They are an excellent all round boutique restoration outfit. Jonny is a pleasure to deal with and always thoughtful and sympathetic in his approach to his work. Also happy to tune price to results. You won’t find better restorers in the UK. Andrew Lamberty.

The team at Schryver are truly professional and work hard to do the very best job possible. They have restored a number of quality pieces for me over the years and each one has been transformed and given a new lease of life. Most recently they have restored a Victorian hall chair that was in two pieces and had sections missing. It’s now just as it should be again.

Schryver have repaired a Victorian cutlery canteen which had split when I dropped it, and then also created a new cornice for a Georgian tester bed which is an immaculate and accurate match. Workmanship and attention to detail are excellent

We were looking for a professional to fix our Eames chair which was falling apart. Luckily enough, after lots of searching, we found Jonny and the team at Schryver, and couldn’t be happier with the job they did. If you’re looking for a true craftsman to repair an Eames chair, or any other cherished piece of furniture, look no further.
