Made in the UK from the highest quality natural waxes to bring out the shine and protect your furniture:
Environmental preservation is very important to us and we make every effort to ensure our products have a minimal impact on the environment:
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 and then wipe in the direction of the grain to spread the wax evenly.
For carved relief areas such as an antique coffer, you can also apply beeswax furniture polish with a cheap 1 inch trimmed paint 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 20 to 30 minutes later with the soft shoe brush and buffing cloth.
I haven’t used the product yet but I love the packaging.
Feeling very pampered as a customer. Pleasant surprise to be treated as an individual, not a robot who happens to buy stuff. Well done to the team
First I purchased the Gilboy’s polishing with beeswax starter kit. From this I decided that I would use Antique Gold to polish my badly faded and sun bleached harmonium. Next I purchased a 125ml pot of Antique Gold which, with the smaller pot in the starter kit, was more than enough to polish the whole harmonium - even with two or three applications to the worst areas. The polish has brought colour back to the wood and has buffed up to a a very satisfying shine. It has left scratches, marks and dings on the harmonium looking darker without obscuring the part they play in the instrument’s one hundred plus years of history. My wife is now finding me other pieces of furniture around the house to revitalise their finish with Gilboy’s!

Made my 19th century silver chest and my antique Fortnum and Mason wooden tea chest look like new.
I have been working professionally with wood finishes and French polishing since I was 14 year's old I now own a small business specialising in antique clock restoration and Gilboys products are by far the best we've ever used .
The guys at the office are always amazingly knowledgeable and helpful .
So happy to have Found such a great product / company certainly will not be changing suppliers for a very long time .
Keep up the great work Gilboys
Amazing product and excellent customer service.
Very good product, really made my antique writing bureau/bookcase look good. Polish doesn't have a horrible lingering smell like most antique furniture polishes do. Very happy with my purchase! Thank you!
In an age of conformity, Gilboys stands apart. The box arrived with a beautifully scripted handwritten note and the quality of the packaging made it a pleasure to open. The polish itself is nice to use and I’ve only had time to try it on an antique tea caddy so far, but it cleaned the inlaid marquetry up and gave a nice natural shine to the wood. I’m looking forward to trying it on some sun-bleached mahogany next. I think that the key thing is to allow time to do the job properly rather than rushing it. Also in the box is a smaller box containing some sweet pea seeds for the benefit of the bees, whose work is essential to the production of this polish.
I ordered the ‘antique gold’ Beeswax Furniture Polishing Kit, and carefully followed the instructions when I waxed and polished our Grandfather clock, which was made by Thomas Storer in Derby in the 1730s and has been in our family for many generations. It has only been superficially waxed and polished over the past few years, but I gave it a deep and thorough clean with your special cloths and Beeswax polish and it turned out beautifully! Thank you so much Gilboy’s!
Not only is the product excellent I bought the Antique gold polishing kit so was the service I would recommend Gilboys products
