Antique Restoration by Daly Antique Services
Antique restoration refers to either the practice of "restoration"- restoring an antique or work of art to a like-new condition. As the old saying goes, "Everyone´s home is their castle" and we at Daly Antique Services know this more than most. As Ireland´s leading antique restoration specialists, we have been entrusted with many of Ireland´s most treasured heirlooms from bookcases to bureaus, chests to chairs, dining tables to davenports, building a portfolio we are very proud of.
This website showcases a small sample of our work of antique restoration and highlights the revitalisation of some items of furniture with the investment our time, labour and expertise. Our workshop in Greenhills Business Park is a hive of activity and we would be delighted to show you around some time. We also supply an assortment of brass fittings, leathers, waxes and polishing materials.
We hope this brief taste of our unrivalled skill base will show you that if you have any needs in the areas of antique restoration: polishing, upholstery, gilding, brass inlay, leather tooling, wood-turning, fretwork plus much more, we are on hand to assist you. Call us anytime for a quotation; we also offer a collection and delivery service.
