FR Review:
In business since 1984, Scottie Donohue specializes in restoring 18th- and 19th-century antiques. Clients praise Donohue's gracious demeanor and accommodating service--she delivers free estimates and works in clients' houses, saving them moving fees and inconveniences. In addition to French polishing, veneering, lacquering, gilding, woodcarving, and structural repairs, Donohue works on chinoiserie, coromandel screens, and inlays in brass, mother of pearl, and ivory. We even heard of a case where she did some decorative painting on a chair, turning an otherwise worthless piece into a show-stopper. Clients repeatedly cite Donohue's perfectionism and meticulous attention to detail.

Private clients and those in the trade value Donohue's versatile skills and extensive knowledge, and she has worked with some of the most noted designers in the city. We heard of several occasions on which Donohue transformed pieces that others had deemed "beyond repair." Sources describe Donohue as communicative, informative, and absolutely trustworthy-- and a good value.

Representative Client Comments:
"She prices by the hour--an incredibly fair rate--but she's a perfectionist and won't stop short, so some might not want to pay for that." "Anything I have asked her to do she has done to perfection. She gives you first-rate stuff, but she works at her own speed, and you can't rush her." "Her commitment to perfection might be her only flaw, if it can be called that."
