Specialist joiner/restoration work - lacquer work

Has anyone come across a specialist joiner / antique restorer who specialises in modern furniture? I have an antique (just) dining set with black lacquer work which i would like repaired and, if possible, restored.

I have no idea where to start...

Thanks
CW

If it's really French Polish, then try at a place that sells pianos. Time was there were journeymen polishers who did nothing but this. (It's not actually all that hard to do).

Why would you specifically ask for someone who specialised in modern furniture for an antique table?

Well 'just' antique is reproduction furniture, not really whats understood by antique furniture.
