July 6, a new Guest on the Antique and Bookmarket The Hague: Paul Berkhout, restorer

Each first Sunday of a month, during the 2014 summer season of the The Hague Antiques and Book market on the Lange Voorhout, you will find two Guest Stalls. We have invited persons and businesses to attend a market stall for a day.
Sponsors are the Municipal of The Hague and the company who delivers the booths, Marktbedrijf Post. They have offered their full and free of charge collaboration to these events.
On Sunday, July 6, we proudly present:
Paul Berkhout, a restorer in The Hague
When you would like to buy an antique or vintage item or piece of furniture, but is has some wear and tear, or is in need of some tender, love and care, or even a major restoration; ask Paul. He might be able to offer you his assistance.
As he says: “Restoring is preserving. Making a detailed plan before restoring a piece of furniture is not a luxury. The need of carefully planning a restoration has proven itself to me through years of experience. The technical part of restoring is a necessity and prolongs the lifespan. The finishing however is often a difficult matter. How to deal with this? Personally I prefer to keep the piece of furniture as close to the original as possible, beauty comes with the years and it is best to keep it that way. Neglect can however be so severe that a more rigorous treatment is necessary.”
