The steps of our on-request restoration service:
- You send us by email digital photos of your trunk or a design of your project (we need the 4 sides, the top and the bottom).
Depending on your trunk’s specificity, rarity and financial or sentimental value, we propose you a possible restoration type. Once you have looked into it, we draw up a restoration price quotation, according to your result requests.
- You send us your trunk or leave it to us.
We will be able to do the following work:
- Minor exterior restoration
- In-depth exterior restoration
- Restoration of the hardware
- Replacement of certain parts
We work with different products for the exterior and interior trunk coating, from paper to leather, through a whole range of upholstery fabrics.
Once our price quotation accepted, we take a series of photographs throughout the restoration work and regularly send them to you by email so that you can follow the progress of your trunk. When the work is terminated, we send you by protected parcel your completed trunk.
Each nail, each metal part, each wooden slat has been taken off, treated and restored separately. The nails, for instance, are straightened out and polished one by one.
Once these steps done, the trunk has been canvas re-coated for a complete refurbishment. To that end, we use the current product named Griffine, equivalent to the yesteryear coated canvas.
After the laying of the canvas, the trunk is reassembled like it was originally built when created.
That kind of restoration is particularly long and tricky. Indeed one must be careful not to break the antique parts which are, most of the time, more than a hundred years old
