Charles II, circa 1665-1680.

The restoration and conservation of this magnificent olive oyster and marquetry cabinet included recreating the stand which was missing. It dates from the reign of King Charles II (last quarter of the 17th-century). This piece is undoubtedly from the workshop of the eminent maker, Thomas Pistor, who alongside Gerrit Jensen, supplied furniture to the Court and noble people of the day.

William & Mary, king wood cabinet on chest, circa 1690.

Another piece attributed to Thomas Pistor. This time veneered in the highly sought after and desirable “king wood” (aka “Princes wood”). This piece required a significant amount of consolidation of loose veneers and mouldings. Replacement bun feet and handles.

Mulberry wood bureau, attributed to Coxed & Wooster, circa 1720.

We are well known for being the workshop to go to for anything “Coxed and Wooster”. We have handled more than our fair share of pieces, both labelled and unlabelled by this important London maker.

Charles II walnut scriptor, circa 1675.

This scriptor is extremely rare and of museum quality. It required careful conservation and consolidation of veneers/surface finish. This piece would certainly have been included in our research project (published in “Furniture History Society” journal 2104) if we had known of it at the time.
