For nearly 20 years,I have provided 'impressive craftsmanship and an excellent service' to both antique dealers and private collectors.
I have restored many famous makes of porcelain from Meissen, Sevres, Paris and Vienna to Derby, Moores ,Royal Doulton, Royal Worcester etc. which all have their particular challenges in replicating the fine painting and relief modelling for which these producers are world renowned.
I have worked on mirrors, garnitures, jardinaires, ornamental plates, vases, figures, statues, candelabras, ceramic paintings as well as cups, trinket boxes, figurines and tiles.
Although I have specialised in European porcelain and ceramic I have also gained considerable experience of working on Oriental porcelain as well as Islamic ceramics and antiquities.
I have restored many styles of fine porcelain including Meissen, Sevres, Vienna, Royal Doulton and Worcester, Wedgwood, Canton, Imari, Satsuma as well as a variety of other materials such as Pottery, Plaster of paris, Alabaster, Terracotta, Jade, Ivory and Enamelware especially Cloisonné.
I possess an excellent eye for detail and colour matching and I have been described by a former Gallery owner as being ' exceptional in Fine Painting and Relief Modelling on a variety of pieces including Figurines,Candalabras and Mirrors'.
I would very much welcome the opportunity to earn your confidence and deliver to you an excellent and efficient service.
I can provide you with an estimate range by appointment or by email.
It helps greatly if you send me close up photos and/or describe in detail the interior and exterior of the piece as well as the damaged area ,including its dimensions and size of the piece.
I can only confirm the estimate range once I've inspected the piece and that is after initial examination
I charge a minimum rate of £30.
I reserve the option of increasing the final price in event of there being extra labour costs that were not anticipated due to each piece having a unique restoration process and complexity..Also if there is revealed damage during the cleaning process which means that the cost will exceed the upper estimate the client will be consulted on how they wish to proceed .
I charge a 60% deposit on restoration work costing above £100 and a discretionary deposit of
£30 or 50% on upto £100
Please be aware that Restored items must be paid for within 4 weeks of restoration completion ,otherwise a storage fee of £10 per additional week will be surcharged in addition to the final cost.
Please also be realistic in your expectations restoration aims to disguise breaks and damage as far as humanly possible but it will never be absolutely perfect again as it has been broken so if examined closely it maybe apparent and obviously will show up under ultra violet light and magnifying glass.
However I will always try to correct something if you are dissatisfied with end result if it is practicable and reasonable and within the original cost bracket unless the desired outcome requires additional work which would then become chargeable
I look forward to being of service to you
