French Polishing became well-known in Britain when the technique was used extensively in the Great Exhibition in 1850-53. However, it was first introduced in the 18th century when it was considered the best finish for highly figured furniture, including string instruments and pianos.
French polish is much more forgiving than other forms of lacquers because it can easily be repaired if any mistakes are made. However, the process of applying French polish is lengthy, repetitive and can be tricky, which is why it’s best to hire a professional for the job.
