I have been putting on Facebook the progress of our new addition, the large sash window lifts/handles.
When we acquired them, half the lacquer was already missing and we needed to strip the rest of it off first.
This is how they looked after this first round of clean up.
Then they went for a first go into the polishing shed and they came back looking much improved
But then they went into the cellar for final hand polish and they are looking fab already
But now they got the royal treatment, with the proper camera and are now on our Website!!!
They have been made by Edwin Showell over 100 years ago! Superb quality and they will last another 100 years easy!
