Mending broken porcelain is often possible but you will need to contact a ceramics restorer to assess whether the damage to your item can be repaired and if it is worthwhile. They will usually need to see the object, or a really good photograph of it, to make a first assessment and give you an estimate of cost.

There are several different types of repair: a ‘museum repair’ aims to make an object stable and to halt any deterioration. It will not seek to disguise any damage but usually will involve deep cleaning of the object so that cracks and other damage are less obvious. Other types of ‘restoration’ can completely hide any damage by painting or spraying over any faults or even making complete new replacement parts such as handles and lids. A professional restorer will always advise the best and most appropriate type of repair for your object.
