5 star review on Amazon
Gilboy's Antique Gold polish outshines all the rest.
"I have used traditional Beeswax on my antique furniture for over forty years, but Gilboy's antique Gold Polish is outstanding, and out performs all the rest. Not only does the polish impart a deep lustrous shine to the wood, but it totally enhances the natural patina of the furniture, and it has a very pleasant perfume. The packaging is excellent, and the team who make it go out of their way to personalise every order. I am now converted to using this high standard and high class product."
(Grenville Johnson, Amazon reviewer 19-2-17)

 

We have developed our beeswax furniture polish to such a fine blend that you don't necessarily have to polish again for at least a year and possibly up to three years.

Great wax polish.

Absolutely great! It has transformed my oak coffer and it’s so good to know that only top quality natural ingredients are used. Smells lovely too!

Hi Anna. Thank you so much for your review. Antique gold is the perfect match for period oak coffers. A top tip would be to use a shoe brush to apply in the carved relief areas. I hope you continue to get great results. Kind regards Simon Gilboy

Impressive

Really worked and rejuvenated what was a dulled finish on an old oak chair.

Hi David. Thank you for your review. I'm glad it worked so well for you. Reviving dulled finishes is one of the many properties we have found works extremely well with Gilboy's gold. I hope you continue to have success with it. Kind Re gards Simon Gilboy

First polish for dark wood!

For over 35 years i have waxed my traditional Ercol and matching stained furniture but have never been able to purchase a top quality natural, beeswax product that is dedicated to the darker furniture. Ercol themselves only made a natural colour beeswax which has been unavailable for years. I intend to keep using this product henceforth and keep my wood furniture in tip top condition.
Product was well wrapped during delivery and the presentation box and its' contents are classy. I am loathe to put it in a cupboard!!
Well researched.

Hi Denise. Thank you for your kind review of our polish. We have been restoring and re-polishing Ercol furniture in the workshop for nearly 25 years. Antique Gold is the perfect accompaniment for it, especially for Ercol that is a few years old. Hopefully our bespoke designed packaging reflects its contents and protects it form any harm. Thank you once again, I hope you continue to achieve great results . Kind regards. Simon Gilboy

BEESWAX FURNITURE POLISH HOW TO USE

  1. Use a soft cloth or very fine ‘0000’ wire wool - (it’s like cotton wool to the touch) 
  2. With gentle pressure spread the polish evenly over the surface in the direction of the grain, being careful not to over apply and avoid any upholstered areas. Once applied the surface area should look matt in appearance 
  3. Allow the pure pine turpentine to completely evaporate and the wax to harden
  4. Use a soft buffing cloth to buff the wax to a deep and lustrous shine 

Weekly furniture maintenance of removing dust can be done by simply using a slightly damp cloth and drying if needed with a clean dry cloth - beeswax polish will protect the surface for a very long time.

If you have a larger surface like the side of a chest of drawers or the top of a dining table apply the beeswax more evenly by dabbing the surface all over with small amounts of polish then wipe in the direction of the grain to spread the wax evenly.

Every jar of Gilboy's Gold beeswax furniture polish is accompanied with a small box of sweet-pea seeds for you to plant and grow to provide more nectar for the amazing honey bees.

Hold on to our special reusable packaging and use it again to return your empty jar for a 25% discounted refill.

*Gilboy’s Secret Trade Tip: 

For carved relief areas such as an antique coffer, you can also apply beeswax furniture polish with a standard shoe polish brush. It makes applying the beeswax much easier and allows the polish to get right into those dusty and hard to reach areas. Buff it the next day with the soft shoe brush.
