Choosing an antique desk

Always choose a reputable antique dealer and preferably one who has the backing of a professional antique dealers association such as LAPADA. This will ensure that they operate by a strict code of conduct, you have recourse to complain if necessary and any purchase is covered by their insurance.  
If you are looking at a piece of furniture take your time and consider whether it is indeed authentic. What is the condition? Is it structurally sound but with evidence of use in keeping with its age?

Care of Antique Furniture

Waxing with a good quality polish based on beeswax (not spray polishes), brings out the colour and grain of the wood and provides protection. Put a small amount of polish on a soft cloth and rub the piece until the wax on the cloth shines. This will burnish the surface and evaporate any solvent. Then polish with a clean duster. If possible, apply the wax at night to allow it to nourish the wood and polish the following day. If the wood has become very dry, the wax will soak in rapidly and should be applied regularly until a good patina has developed.
