Good afternoon I just wanted to share with everyone this Gilbert my sister gave for Christmas. That Gilbert was the best present she could have given me because I could see the diamond in the ruff. Because of its condition I decided to take created license on its restoration. Its not what it was but what I envisioned it could become. Most people would have torn it down for parts but not me! Using Gilbert parts that I had, this is how it turned out. The finish is french polish. let me know what you think of the old girl. I only have one picture of its condition before my restoration My bad.
