A pair of George III bombe chests circa 1765 in manner of John Cobb 1

The bracket feet of these commodes had been cut down and the gilt-bronze mounts had been moved. In order to restore them to their original form, I created a new shaped bracket foot and then veneered the surface in harewood (sycamore).

I then stained the veneer to create a perfect colour match, then polished and waxed it up to build a rich patina to match the rest of the commode.

Before and after.
