This porcelain box has a metal frame and hinge. Unfortunately, the metal hinge was broken which is why the customer brought it in for repair. Now that the hinge is repaired, the customer can continue to cherish this memento.
Sterling Silver Figures
When these cast sterling silver figures arrived at my studio, the original paint was worn and chipped, in some places the paint was almost completely worn off. After documentation of the remaining paint, the figures were cleaned and polished, after which they were repainted.
