Lladro Figurine Repair

Dear David

Richard McDermott. Plymouth

The parcel arrived safely this morning.
I have to say that I am absolutely delighted with the results of your work.  The figurine now sits alongside its partner – Girl with Candle.

Until you actually see the finished article it is difficult to visualise the effects of restoration and an “invisible mend” is, in this instance, exactly what I have got.  There is no discernable difference in the shade of glaze on the restored item compared to the original of the Girl with Candle.  Remarkable!  Should I ever be asked to recommend a china restorer I would have no hesitation in passing on your details.

Thank you once again.

Kind Regards

Pam Moore. Wales

Lladro Figurine Repair

Valerie Etheridge Chattons Cambridgeshire

Hello David
I’m writing to say a big “THANK YOU” for the wonderful restoration work you’ve carried out on my Lladro figurine, its absolutely first-class and worth every penny I’ve paid for it.
I cannot see any sign of restoration work, the flower and leaf are moulded so beautifully and the colour is as vibrant as the other flowers on the figurine, I am unable to tell the difference. You’ve done a fantastic job.
Thank you again.


Rosenthal Base Repair

Claire Kizlink. Monte-Carlo, Monaco

Thank you.
The repair is unbelievable and the goat is so happy to be out of the cupboard.  No one would know it is not a brand new base, all is quite perfect.  My husband is so delighted to have this very beautiful piece of china where we can enjoy it. He will be 90 at the end of next week and the goat has followed him to many countries.
Yours sincerely,
Claire Kizlink.

Dear David,

The restoration that you have carried out to my Majolica inkwell can only be described as exceptional!
Few occasions can ever arise where I am happy to highly recommend the services of another, but on this rare occasion, I am delighted to do so.
From the very beginning of our correspondence, it was obvious that I was dealing with a true professional. My complete faith in you has been rewarded through your skill.

Thank you David and should any prospective client require further endorsement to this testimonial, then I shall be delighted to provide it.

Beswick Horses Repairs

Hi David

Just letting you know that I have received my repaired Beswick safe and sound. Thank you so much for doing a superb job. If I hadn’t kept pictures I wouldn’t be able to tell which ears had been repaired. It really means a lot to me as they were my late Mums and she always talked about repairing them as they meant a lot to her. In the nicest way I hope I don’t need to use you again but you never know. I would definitely recommend you to my friends.
Thanks again
