Daisy’s mum and dad’s altars are taking shape. Ready for polishing.
May 26, 2017
Daisy came with her mum and dad to scope out some Chinese worship tables (altars).
There are some very strict rules to follow when building these pieces as dictated by our good client. For example, each dimensional measurement must have an “8” in it. Possibly the most common lucky number? 8 is considered lucky because its pronunciation is similar to that of the word ‘发’ (fa in) ‘发财’ (‘to make a fortune’).
Greg came to Renowned because he’d been watching our website and news posts for a few years and decided that we were the right company to help him replicate his late grandmother’s display cabinet.
After she passed, the vultures moved in and cleaned out the house before Greg could get there to salvage the cabinet that his grandfather had made in 1925. He did manage to salvage some of the Royal Dalton china and has been adding to it ever since.
Using memory and with our craftsman’s assistance, we custom made a replica in silky oak with flocked drawers for the silverware.
