A Victorian button back arm chair, unfortunately a simple wobble on a chair, whatever the age, can be a big job. All upholstery has to come off, we totally take apart the chair and reglue with fish glue. Then upholstered as before.
Chairs get the most abuse out of all furniture so suffer the biggest damage.
Remember the cheap set of chairs you buy which are all loose can be a very expensive later!
This was a very fine late 17 century longcase clock, usual problems of veneer and mouldings lifting. The clock was make from olive wood with fine marquetry decoration, not overworked and beautifully proportioned. Bad split in the base which needed glue and replacement of the missing marquetry. The feet were a later addition which we changed to small bun feet. A clock like this is a joy to work on, wonderful craftsmanship and a dream of early engineering.
The movements of clocks I sub contract to a specialist to restore.
