Every antique needs a little TLC to age gracefully…..
Due to the age of the wood and the fact that natural materials respond to their environment, it is possible that some movement, cracking or splitting may occur in our pieces. How to care for your antique furniture:
- Avoid placing this piece in direct sunlight or in high temperature areas, such as next to a radiator, hot air vents or air conditioners.
- Place a humidifier in the room, especially during winter months.
- Dust the furniture regularly to remove abrasive debris. Always use a dry cloth and never use silicone polish, chemicals, spray-on polish or other commercial cleaners.
- Surfaces can be cleaned with a mild solution of soap and water and then immediately dried with a clean, dry cloth.
- Do not place cups, vases or hot items directly on the furniture.
- Always use soft padding on the bottom surface of any object sitting on the surface of the furniture to minimize scratching.
- Always lift furniture to move it, do not drag.
- Polish occasionally with a high quality, pure bees wax to restore to the original luster.
