Important initial steps of your restoration enquiry.

Associate member of the Institute of Conservation (ICON) : I'm always happy to discuss the products and services on offer and explain any restoration options that may be available to you on all types of antique and modern china, pottery and porcelain and studio pottery.

Restored vase

Collect as many pieces of the damaged item as you can and protect them from further damage by wrapping them separately and storing them in a safe location. Please do not attempt to carry out any repairs prior to seeking professional advice. Please note : The use of superglue prior to the piece arriving at the studio will extend the restoration period and increase the repair costs due to the time scale required to remove it and on some occasions it has resulted in the restoration being compromised as correct re-alignment cannot be achieved.

Making Contact

Please contact us with your initial enquiry by email or phone using the contact options on this website and we'll advise you on the best way to proceed with your specific restoration request. Check the services page for details of our waiting list and restoration timescales. Our Terms and Conditions link supplies access to details of notification of completion, timescales for collection, invoice due dates and storage charges that may apply, a copy of which is available on request.

Ideally, if you are able to supply digital images during this initial stage that give of good general idea of the damage involved then you can include all relevant images as email attachments and a restoration estimate will be compiled and returned to you. Please note that although a reasonable idea of any restoration requirements can be gained from good photographic evidence, a better understanding of the damage and a more detailed restoration plan can be formed following a workshop inspection and in turn a more accurate quote can then be supplied. Prior notice will be required for large volume requests. All consultations are by appointment only.

Please Note : Restoration to gilding is part of the services we offer. A close match is achievable for most types of gilding but a workshop examination is always required prior to confirmation of this part of the restoration process.
