Edwardian style writing-desk from Maple & Co.

This desk from the early twentieth century was made in the British workshops Maple & Co. Both the structure and the marquetry were strongly damaged due to the passing of time, but most importantly because several months ago the wood was highly hydrated due to a water leak. The frame was lock by gluing all its parts, as well as the background of the desk. The missing drawer slides were installed. The veneer in palisander, the marquetry and the fillets were repaired and glued. The desktop leather was cleaned and fed, restoring its original color and golden garlands. We finished this piece of furniture by applying French polishing to its exterior and waxing the interiors. We also cleaned, applied a patina to the gilt mounts and made a key to the locks on the desktop.
