China-Repair by David Battams
Please do visit www.chinarepairs.com to see more examples while this site is being updated.
Since the time when ceramic items were first made, they were also sadly prone to breakages, methods of repair and preservation were found and used, from using leather straps and literally stitching an item together, to the present day use of modern day Epoxies and glazes to return an item to its original appearance through skilled restoration.
My aim is to provide the best possible repairs to your treasured possessions, using the most up to date methods, returning your items to their former glory.
A wide range of services are available to suit the individual needs and budget of the client, ranging from conservation or “museum” repairs, to high quality “invisible” repairs.
My aim is always to provide the very best possible repairs at all times to restore your items to their former glory, and the quality of my work is always my main objective, and because of this I’m highly regarded by my many clients, and considered one of the best in my field today, as some of my testimonials show. I repair porcelain for both Dealers and Private clients, auction houses and Insurance companies.
A recent testimonial of my work kindly given by a client.
Lladro Figurine Repair
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.
