Jen78, I'm a new member and found your advice about varnishing cane and wicker really interesting! Thank you. What varnish did you use? I've been quoted over £1000 to have various pieces of wicker and cane furniture, a vintage teddy and rocking horse and a driftwood cupboard fumigated in the UK. I think it's excessive so if it's ok to varnish the wood and wicker then I will, but what about the toys? They are filled with straw and date back to 1960.... Thank you.
