This fully illustrated ste-by-step guide gives a clear account of all aspects of the repair of objects from the simplest everyday plate to a complex porcelain figurine.

Along with detailed methods and advice on materials and techniques, the authors discuss the question of conservation and restoration and whether to what extent valuable items should be restored. Sections range from how to recognize the different types of ceramic body and assess the appropriate technique for their repair, to using fillers to restore and remould missing fragments, and finishing, painting and gilding.
