On the cabinet at right the dutch metal (imitation gold

leaf) gilding has tarnished and the paint film is failing.

 Before any restoration was undertaken the painted

 design was carefully copied. The loose material was

 then removed and the surface prepared for gilding. 

After gilding a protective coating was applied.

The hand painted design was then executed.
