Purple Paulin Chairs

Two Pierre Paulin Chairs needed full conservation: Innards were failing,
and the show cover was in poor condition.  The painted finish was not original (previously repainted).  The finish was badly gouged, and was missing altogether in places.

We conserved the innards, and restored the piece to its original beauty.
Our client wanted us to finish the wooden elements simply,
instead of restoring the painted finish we used our house traditional blonde shellac.

The lovely purple color looked beautiful in her new home!
