Curry & Hovis, Inc. is located at 54 Westchester Ave., Pound Ridge, NY, 10576 in Westchester County.
From Curry: "The core of our work is the restoration of 18th century furniture. We began this work in 1982 and after nine years formed the current business, Curry and Hovis. We are dedicated to preserving the integrity of the objects we care for through the use of traditional, reversible methods and materials. It is of the utmost importance, that in the future, the original cabinetmakers work will be apparent and any work we do is consistent with it.
"Damaged parts are repaired rather than replaced, patches are of old matching wood, and finishes are preserved. We have developed a thoughtful analysis process to insure that the best approach is taken to complex jobs. Our repairs are done with horsehide glue as was originally used, and finishing is French polishing and wax.
"Much of our work includes reglueing, French and wax polishing, and patching veneer. We also do traditional water gilding and patch many gilt rococo mirrors. Out of the ordinary jobs are welcome and we find them very interesting. Our work is not confined to furniture as we do many decorative objects."
