Yesterday I went to visit the Capilano Suspension Brigde in North Vancouver.
The Capilano Suspension Brigde is 450 feet (137m) long and 230 feet (70m) high. Also there are seven suspension bridges through the rainforest.
It was cold and rainy day but we enjoyed the beautiful nature.
We toured most of the Park but we will return soon to see the balcony Cliffwalk, which is a granite walkway suspended out fromthe cliff face that offers amazing views.
Today I started my new restoration project for Uno Langmann Limited Fine Art, a very prestigious antique dealer on south Granville in Vancouver.
The piece is a console table. A console table is a table fixed to a wall with its top supported by consoles or front legs, in this case the console has only one leg.
The console table is carved and gilded wood possibly Italian and 200 years old.
The piece has several serious problems:
The main problems are the flaking of the gesso, and missing areas of gilding.
The gold leaf is missing, which is caused by improper cleaning of the gilding over time. The gilding and gesso are in such bad condition that in some areas you can see the wood.
