Antique Restoration Athenaeum Philadelphia

The Athenaeum

This table originally made era 1830-35 is attributed to Charles H. White of Philadelphia.  When it came to Robert Whitley for restoration much of the original pain and gold leaf had been lost. Before I could begin that work I had to repair and consolidate much of the underlying wood itself. Much of the figured mahogany was missing and needed to be repaired. I was also able to clean and improve the surface of the beautiful marble top. This particular Pier table with green, black and gold dolphins and articulated fish scales is one of the best types and makes a dynamic visual statement.
