China fruit bowl repairs

This broken china fruit bowl was a very old French made fruit bowl which was a family keepsake and after restoration it looks fantastic!

"Hi Marron, Just wanted to say a big thank you for the repair to my fruit bowl. It’s brilliant; can’t believe you’ve managed to do such a fantastic job. Looks just as it was!"

Beswick-style 'Horse with Rider' china repairs

Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness, Value
I have very recently had a horse & rider ornament repaired. One of the horse's leg had in the past a very bad repair and the red coat of the rider had faded badly. Marron has done an amazing job. The old repair has been expertly re repaired, the red coat now looks like new. I cannot praise the quality & standard of work enough. Especially as this ornament was over 60 years old. Marron Cheshire is also very reasonably priced. I had quotes from some other china repairer's and I think they thought they were quoting for a Ming Vase repair, as the prices were so very high.
I very highly recommend this lady for any china repairs you may have.

Zeuthen Keramik ‘Edith’ Teapot and Jug restoration

Richard Baines, London

Beswick china restorer

Marron has done amazing repairs on my Beswick Huntsman figures. I have used her before, and will not hesitate to use her again if necessary, nor will I have any worries in recommending her service in the future. The legs on the horses are particularly vulnerable to breaks, but they have been given a new lease of life and you really cannot see the repair. The service was fast, efficient, and friendly, and the quality of work, second to none.

Lladro dress rehearsal figurine repaired

Marron, We feel compelled to thank you in writing for your wonderful work to restore our Lladro figurine. We know you are a little critical of some of what you achieved but for us it is nothing but miraculous given the damage I managed to impart on this figurine that means so much to us.

We have attached 2 photos of the figurine now mounted on it’s platform, both commanding and complementing our marble fire place. Unfortunately, the photos do not demonstrate how complementary the figurine is to the marble colouring.

We so enjoyed meeting ,chatting and marvelling at your skills and patience and send our very sincere complements and best wishes.

I confirm safe receipt of my horse which arrived a few minutes ago. Very many thanks for the wonderful restoration.

I am absolutely thrilled with the result which is worth every penny paid - such a perfect finish to it.

This is of great sentimental value to me as it belonged to my father who died in 2005 who had a great interest in the Native North American people.

Once again thank you very much. I will certainly recommend you to any tentative enquiries I may receive.

Very sincerely,

Jul Fest 1940 platePrisoner of war ceramic plate, 1940

Hello Marron,

The ceramic plate* arrived yesterday, I am surprised on how good the colour match is, mind being the plate has no colour you as a restorer might find this better than having to match different colours.

Thank you very much for the excellent work, William

* This plate is a JulFest plate made by prisoners of the Germans in the concentration camps in 1940

Beswick Shire Horse restoration

I would just like to say a huge big thank you Marron, for your amazing repair of my mother's Beswick Shire horse.

From my initial enquiry right through to collection you have been so kind and considerate. This piece has such a sentimental attachment to it and you remembered this, and worked hard to get it back to me for my mother's 80th birthday. 

It has been a particularly hard year, with the loss of my dad and mum said 'he would have loved to see how it looks now, he would be chuffed'. My mum was truly touched and amazed, it is now back pride of place to be enjoyed once more. 

Thank you truly so much. Take Care.

Broken Toby Jug repairs

Dear Mrs Cheshire, Just a line to let you know that I have received the parcel from you and that I’m really delighted with your restoration of Mr Toby. He has been taken under the wing of my 92 year old father, a wartime RAF veteran, and is now residing peacefully by the sea at Birchington-on-Sea, Kent. I shall certainly send any further ceramic items that I find that are in need of restoration. I’ve currently got my eye on an old brown ceramic Blackamoor Tobacco Jar for Turkish tobacco with a few chips.

Many thanks, Paul H.

Best ceramic restorer in the UK!

"Marron Cheshire restores china for people all over the world. She's known by reputation for the amazing work she does for antique dealers, cleaning companies, insurance companies, building companies and everyday people, like me.

Marron restores all types of ceramic (ceramics includes china, pottery and tiles) and when someone (i.e. me) sends here a broken Ming Vase which has been dropped and is now in a thousand pieces with bits missing she does her magic!

She glues it all together (with special glue), makes the parts that are missing, sands it all down and repaints it so you can't see the mend – Marron does an amazing job. I’ve given Marron lots of broken china to mend and I’ve always been super pleased with the results. She'll even remake the china. For instance, one of my precious broken Lladro porcelain figures lost its head and another Lladro figure was broken and had one hand and a whole arm, that was holding a basket of flowers, smashed. So Marron made a new hand, arm and basket of flowers for one and a new head for the other - exactly the same as it was when it was first created! Absolutely amazing china restorer – thank you Marron!  I will be recommending you to all my butter-finger friends."
Best wishes, Mrs Vines, Buckinghamshire
