Abbey Group

People are talking!

When our oak dining table was damaged during our move we didn’t for a minute think that anyone would be able to restore it to its former state. The table was a wedding present, and so we are thrilled that you have not only repaired the damage so well that we can’t even tell where it was, but the table looks better than it has in years. I’m sure we’ll be back in future, and will be recommending your restoration services to our friends

Whether it’s the gamer with hundreds of games piled up by the TV, the knitter with thousands of balls of wool hidden in the cupboard under the stairs, or the DIY lover with tools scattered throughout the garage, hobbies have a way of spreading out into the space around us.

Caring For Your Antique Watches

29th August 2018

 

Your antique watch has enemies. They include dust, dirt, moisture and shocks, to name a few. It’s also probably mechanical, meaning is has between 200 and 400 moving parts, all crammed into the tiny space between the plates. Antique watches are beautiful, a relic of a simpler time, and often passed down the generations as keepsakes. But left alone, they will struggle to stay working, and you could end up with a non-functioning watch before...

The Do’s and Don’t of Storing Antiques

12th June 2018

Should you restore your antique furniture?

19th December 2017

 

Older furniture can be some of the most beautiful, well-crafted furniture out there. Whether it’s a piece you found hidden in the corner of a charity shop, inherited from a relative or were even donated by a neighbour having a clear out – an antique piece of furniture is something that should be preserved and cherished. But sometimes they have been sat in storage for a bit too long, damaged, eaten by moths or simply...
