Restoring black lacquer finish on antique furniture



December 5, 2008

Q. I have rescued part of an antique boulle cabinet furniture from the flood waters of Hurricane Ike. The black lacquer finish is chipped, the tortoise shell is pealing, the brass inlay is tarnished, but the carved wood trim moulding is in tack except the gold leaf is gone. It will never be what is was originally but I would like to use this decorative arts remnant to make a console for our foyer by adding a contemporary base to it. Can you tell me how to repair the black lacquer?

A. Conservation of Furniture by N.Umney and S.Rivers is very good book on that subject.
