Back Story

What a beautiful story attached to this one! It’s a pure delight and an honour to make something so special for someone holding so many precious memories. 

I found this beautiful antique pearl and immediately fell in love. A stunning example of an English mahogany drinks cabinet. When I went to pick it up the man told me his father had just died and that it had been his treasured possession that he had bought in England and had sent over to The Netherlands in the 1960s. His father had just passed away and he was selling on all his treasured antiques. 

A couple of months later a lady came to my workshop and fell in love with it just like I had. She went on to tell me that her father (who lived in England!) had passed away a year ago and that she wanted to make something special to remember him by. She asked me if I could restyle it for her and personalise by adding a photo of her father’s favourite magnolia tree which still stands today in her mother’s garden. Wow! What a special way to remember him by!

This has been a special piece to work on, not only because of the personal story attached to it, but also because it was in such immaculate condition and such an elegant example of pure old-fashioned craftsmanship! 

I’m sure the piece is now treasured again in its lovely new home. Farewell Magnolia. It’s been a pleasure 💕
