"I do not know how to start to thank you for the beautiful job you did on the restoration of the Wedgwood fairland luster vase.It truly surprised me when I opened the box and removed the vase. I am so happy to have this object come back to life- thanks to you."                                                          B. Jazzar                                                                   **********************************************************"As you know, I dropped my wife's limited edition Lalique while she was away in Europe. I thought I would have to leave town when she got back and found out what happeded. You restored it so perfectly that she is none the wiser, and the cost was less than a divorce. Thanks and I've learned my lesson-hands off!"                                                                 Richard McBryde                                                       **********************************************************""I can't say enough to express my gratitude for your devine work. You not only restored some of my most valuable pieced, but also my faith in human nature. The personal pride you take in your work is so admirable, and the results simply take my breath away."   Rachel Epstein      

Services


With combined experience of over forty years, we are specialists in the complete repair of  objects 'd' art and artifacts.

All work is done in-house by both master restorers and our highly trained artisans, who specialize in unique areas of restoration.

Our specially developed filling compound allows us to create missing areas and make missing parts (legs, arms, fingers, etc.).

Our bonding agents vary from traditional standard polymers to state-of-the-art epoxies.

Our paints are archieval — non-yellowing.

Our glaze (restorers glaze) has been specially formulated to our specifications by a leading art supply company.

Ceramic, porcelain and pottery, with their variety of glazed surfaces (gloss, semi-gloss, or matt) can be perfectly replicated.

The translucency and color variations of jade can be reproduced as well as the textures, tones and color variations of marble, alabaster, ivory and stone.

The aged surfaces and patinas of artifacts can also be perfectly replicated.

It is to be noted that repairs, although very durable, are cosmetic. Because items are not refired in a kiln, restorations are more suited for decorative than utilitarian purposes.
