Aynsley Mastercraft Ornament repair

Not all repairs and restorations are for expensive items

Sometimes you might have an ornament which you treasure highly but which didn’t cost the earth. If it gets broken you have a choice: leave it broken in the cupboard, try to find a replacement – knowing that the same emotional attachment won’t be there, get it professionally repaired and forget in a few weeks that it was ever broken.

This Aynsley Mastercraft piece showing two kingfishers fighting over a fish has been brought in to Gadsbys Restoration team for the third option – getting it professionally repaired!
