Re: Wood restoring recomendations

I can't give you a name of such a person/company sorry, but I can offer you some advice.

Is the finish of the dresser a lacquer/French Polish/varnish/shellac coating?

If so and you've only got a relatively small are that needs repairing (as opposed to the whole top or side etc), then you'll need someone pretty experienced and capable to cut-back the existing finish around the damage and then blend in new polish/finish to match the older finish.

As it's valuable to you, I would also suggest you see some work the tradesperson has worked on before to assess the workmanship. Filling in/repairing damage is certainly not impossible, but needs a much higher level of competence to achieve a flawless finish that's consistently blended with the rest of the piece.

Good luck with it.
