Most of my work comes via word of mouth, so here are some China Restoration reviews:
It was really delightful to see you again yesterday. Thank you so very much for doing such a wonderful repair on the salad fork and bowl – you really are very skilled and talented ….
“I cannot thank you enough for the wonderful job you have done repairing Snow White and Dopey. I am absolutely thrilled and will now keep it in a safe place.
I hope you are well. When I accidentally knocked over my very much loved Tiffany style lamp, smashing it in several places, I thought I’d never see it whole again. Then after weeks of searching for someone who would be willing to repair it, I found your website and now just a few weeks later I am looking at my restored lamp again – beautifully illuminated! Thank you so much. You have done a magnificent job repairing it for me and even though you emphasised that you wouldn’t be able to make it perfect, the result has way surpassed my expectation. After meeting and speaking with you I suspect that the wonderful work you do really is a labour of love and this has been so well reflected in the restoration of my treasured lamp. Again, thank you so much Pauline. I will be sure to tell everyone about you and your marvellous work.
All best wishes,”
I am writing to thank you for the lovely repair of my Lladro ‘Magic of Comedy’. I was so disappointed when I found that I had been sold a damaged ornament but he is now back in ‘pride of place’ in my collection. He looks absolutely perfect and I am so pleased.
Thank you once again
Ali and Jo are thrilled to see the new revitalised Madonna. I was impressed with your marvellous repair.
Thank you so much. Also I enjoyed the floral dresses from the mannequin parade.
“Dear Mrs. Ashley,
Thank you for the return of the archaic pot. I have wanted to return it to good condition after its unfortunate accident. The decoration of a proto-geometric vase is all important and you have done a highly professional and excellent balanced job on it. I am sure I could not have had as good a restoration had I taken it to a museum. Should you ever wish to give my name as a reference please do.
I thought I would write to thank you for the excellent job you did for me restoring my two damaged vases.
Both my parents passed away in 2009 and I inherited the vases, but unfortunately our cleaning lady damaged one and my late mother attempted to repair the other herself. I am sure you will understand that they both are of huge sentimental value to me. I was so surprised to see them when you had worked your magic! Both repairs are virtually invisible and you have not only repaired the vases but my broken heart too!
It has taken me far too long to write and tell you how pleased I am with the Foley china cup and plate and the glass decanter you have repaired so cleverly.
Many thanks at last,
