Crow Haven Restorations
My restoration business is based in Poughkeepsie, New York. I’ve specialized in cleaning, and re-polishing existing finishes of antique furniture since 1984. I believe it is very important to work with what you have on a piece, be conservative, and try to make the piece not look overly restored. Only as a last resort does one strip a finish.
I repair, reglue, and duplicate where necessary. I have a specialty in restoring bronze powdered stenciled furniture, having studied under June Pierce, a member of the Historical Society of Early American Decoration. Stenciled decoration was popular during the 1830′s and is often seen on “Hitchcock” type chairs. I have worked for several historical societies, and have many private clients. My references are available upon request.
My studio is private but please feel free to call for an appointment. I’m glad to come to your house for an estimate. See my contact page for more information on how to get in touch with me.
