Wood sculpture restoration examples

Bear nose before restoration

Conservators are able to address cracks and breakages with historically appropriate techniques, re-adhering broken areas and in some cases recreating lost parts where the original is missing. Our specialists typically restore:

  • Dust and debris build-up
  • Deterioration from rot
  • Loss of varnish or polish
  • Loss of colour
  • Accidental breakages
  • Cracks and flaking
  • Recreation of missing details
  • Water damage from floods and leaks
  • Fire and smoke damage

They can also reapply the original finish of a sculpture, whether this is french polish, lacquer, gilding, paintwork or wax.

When an area is missing or beyond repair, our team can perfectly recreate and colour-match new pieces, allowing the sculpture to return to stable condition with its original visual appeal.

Loose or failing joins, as well as historic areas of repair, can be stabilised to ensure your object is in good condition without fear of continued deterioration.

Our team has previously restored a variety of wooden objects including:

  • Guy Taplin sculptures
  • Wooden figurines
  • Church sculptures
  • Chess pieces
  • Croquet set pieces
  • Sculptural furniture decoration

How much will my object restoration cost?

Guy Taplin example restoration

We are very pleased with the careful and considered restoration of our wooden sculpture. The repaired sections blend seamlessly and the original colours and styling have been matched. It has all been cleaned and looks a treat! From the initial contact, accurate quote and timescale, regular updates, couriering and the accomplished work itself, it was a professional service from start to finish.

Very professional and skilled organisation. I thought our ceramic clown was beyond repair but when it came back you literally could not tell it had been repaired. They keep you informed of progress throughout the process.
