'antique gold' Beeswax Wood Polish (1 litre)

   Ships Monday

Made in the UK. A dark beeswax polish designed for use on dark and antique woods such as Antique Oak, Mahogany, Walnut, Elm or similar dark coloured woods.


Simply the best beeswax polish for any type of wood. 

  • Made from the highest quality natural waxes to bring out the shine and protect your furniture
  • INCLUDES ultra-soft '0000' grade wire wool for the best application
  • INCLUDES 100% cotton open-weave polishing cloth for easier buffing without streaks
  • 100% natural ingredients
    • The best triple-filtered beeswax, organically-farmed and humanely-harvested by the world-renowned beekeepers at Buckfast Abbey
    • Natural T1-grade carnauba wax
    • Natural myrica, Japan and berry waxes
    • Pure pine gum spirits of turpentine
    • No white spirit, No toluene, No aggressive petrochemical solvents and definitely No silicone!
  • Say 'Thank You' to the bees by growing our complimentary sweet pea seeds  **unfortunately this offer excludes USA due to FDA regulations

    Our beeswax furniture polish provides the best protection for the finish of all woods. It is very easy to apply and a little polish goes a very long way because turpentine holds much more wax in suspension by volume than any petrochemical solvent. 

    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. 


    Environmental preservation is very important to us and we make every effort to ensure our products have a minimal impact on the environment:

    • We are not driven by a corporate cost-reduction ethos. We select our components based on quality and sustainability rather than the cheapest alternatives
    • 100% Plastic-free recyclable packaging
      • Recycled cardboard and paper from FSC-approved mixed sources
      • Packing tape that is paper & cotton based with a water-based gum adhesive which can be recycled along with the cardboard boxes
      • No polypropylene-based tape. We use biodegradable raffia twine.
    • No petrochemical solvents, we use only pure pine gum spirits of turpentine
    • Our workshop roof is completely covered in solar panels and generates far more electricity than we consume


    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.

    Great service, great product

    I discovered Gilboy’s via a YouTube video and bought their Antique Gold wax polish to finish the deep clean of an elm dining table. Ordering was easy and the polish arrived very quickly, with some Sweet Pea seeds and a lovely note from Jo. The polish did exactly what it said on the tin and the table is back to looking great again.

    Fantastic product!

    Having recently purchased a Georgian sideboard from an antique shop they suggested that I use Gilboy’s wax to maintain the piece and to give it a wonderful glow. I promptly went online and ordered the wax and was delighted to receive the beautiful presented box in a matter of days. I promptly opened it and used the wax on the item of furniture and am absolutely delighted with the results! Really pleased that they offer the service of refills and a bonus at a reduced price too. Would highly recommend!

    Fantastic product superbly marketed

    A superbly high quality product, although not cheap, its good value as I use very little compared to other cheaper products. I will be returning the empty jar (another great idea) for a reduced cost refill when its empty, be a while yet though. Personalised handwritten packaging is lovely idea in this electronic age!

    Back for more!!

    Sometimes you come across a product and a service that stands out from its competitors. Not only the wonderful quality of this Beeswax Polish, but the attention to detail and personal touch in the service; something which I appreciate immensely. Very happy, and thanks.

    Brought my furniture back to life

    Great product- beautifully packed. Lovely smell and my dining table and chairs look amazing !

    Philip Brown (Evesham, GB)

    This is the third purchase I have made from Gilboys I started with the three wax starter pack, which I thought was a great idea to test out the waxes. I was completely amazed at the difference it has made to my antique furniture. The pieces have never looked so good. Highly recommended

    Great polish,

    Used it a week after receiving it. Seriously over packaged, hence the 4 stars, however great polish, my battered 150 year old bedside table looks, and smells, great.

    Hi Suz28
    Thank you for your very kind review. I'm glad the polish performed well for you.
    The packaging has to be good to ensure the polish arrives to you in the same condition it left our workshop. The cardboard it is held in is made from FSC approved 75% recycled cardboard. Without it we would have damaged parcels all over the world.
    I hope you continue to have success with our polish.
    Best wishes

    Simply the best!

    I have purchased all three varieties of polish and each one of them is simply superb. It is by far the best polish I have ever used and our furniture has never looked so good.

    Anne Hutchins (Ryde, GB)
    Happy customer!

    I was really delighted with the prompt on line response, the advice given, and the speed of product delivery. The polish has made a significant contribution to restoring my old furniture and I have found lots of additional things to us it on too.
    The beautiful packaging and hand written note was an unexpected pleasure and made me feel like a valued customer, and the refill policy and sweet pea seeds is a nice touch. Thank you!

    Excellent result thank you. Used polish over the week end and my furniture look nearly brand new
