Conservation and Restoration
We strive for the highest quality in our craft. We treat each object entrusted to us with the utmost care. We have experience and expertise with the following name-brands and types:

Fine ceramics from world renowned names such as, Lladro, Meissen, Dresden, Boehm, Hummel, Capodimonte, Wedgwood, Royal Doulton, Satsuma, Imari, Picasso,Tiffany, Swarovski, and Baccarat among others. We have repaired objects from North and South America, Europe, Asia and Polynesia. We also have experience with indigenous peoples artifacts, such as Native American, Eskimo as well as North and South American folk art.

Conservation involves arresting deterioration and/or minor rebuilding with minimal redecoration. Essentially this means, stopping the spread of cracks and/or filling large chips, minor gluing and minimal repainting of damaged areas. Repairs will be visible. This can be an economical approach in which arresting deterioration now prevents more expensive repairs later. If one chooses conservation now, the ground work would be laid for a full restoration later, making the full restoration less expensive.

Restoration involves restoring an object as close as possible to its original condition, or the condition it was in right before it was damaged. This requires rebuilding the object, creating missing pieces, leveling cracks and filling the smallest chips. Hand painting, airbrushing and glazing finish the job. The final results are virtually invisible repairs.
