A Television Opportunity
The restoration work that we undertake here at Green & Cockburn is broad and varied, but one consistent thread that we have noticed over the years is that many of the objects passing through our workshops having intriguing tales to tell. Here is one fascinating example of this type involving a longcase clock, which might have connections to Thomas Gainsborough. (Please see link of some film work already undertaken on this subject).
We’re looking to develop this idea out into a television series, with a lot of the pre-production work having already been undertaken. It will be a great opportunity to make more people aware of the objects that can be purchased easily at auction, and then restored, highlighting the work of the antiques trade as a whole, as well as focusing on the individual objects themselves.
What can be better than to acquire a unique piece of antique furniture which has been lovingly restored for your home, rather than buying a mass-produced flatpack unit? Sympathetic restoration work also helps to conserve our domestic heritage for future generations, and represents the ultimate in recycling!
