Boulle Conservation and Repair

  • Hinge detail on cabinet

Boulle items frequently come into our workshop with significant lifting or missing brass, tortoiseshell or pewter. When we lift and re-lay we take utmost care to ensure that the colour, surface finish and patina is maintained across all surface areas by avoiding heat in the process.

The images show how we lift blistered and lifting areas, carefully removing any debris and old adhesive before re-laying.
