Two pieces sent for repair. Phone call upon reciept confirmed fear one was beyond repair. The candor impressed me immensely. The second piece was part of a matched set of swans or ducks (depends on who you ask it seems). Sent both damaged piece and the matching piece for reference during the restoration process.
Both came back into my home better than I really could expect. Had to look at photos of damage piece to figure out which one had been restored. The matched set are now on display in my home. Already have received comments on the subtle beauty of both.
Thanks Patti and Carrie for all your effort and care to return beauty to reminders of one’s life adventures.
