In for restoration a Royal Doulton Folly with an arm broken off

Steps of Restoration

  • Firstly the joint was cleaned of any old glue etc…
  • The arm was reattached into place, some small bits were missing and so the joint was filled
  • After rubbing down the joint a primer coat was applied
  • Once we were happy the joint was good
  • The figure was hand-painted back to its original condition
  • Finally, a coat of super hard glaze was applied
