Doll restoration can include making sure that your antique doll is ready to weather whatever may come in the future. It took us three weeks just to glue and bond the existing pieces, and sculpt all the necessary missing fragments. Soon, your doll will look and feel the same way it did when you grandmother (or great-grandmother) first held it in her hands as a small child. Along with the repainting and filling of the cracks, doll restoration includes matching the texture of the original doll’s surface. Using expertly trained artists, the color and paint that may have faded from the doll can be matched, bringing back an invigorated appearance. Next, the restoration expert will look at the doll’s color and texture. If the pieces are still available, the artist may be able to glue missing portions of the doll back in place while invisibly filling holes. If the doll is made of porcelain or other sensitive ceramics, the expert may look for cracks and missing pieces. A trained doll restoration expert will examine the doll carefully, looking for problem areas. Antique doll repair can be a complex process. That’s when an experienced ceramic doll restoration and repair artist needs to come in. With the fading of paint and the dulling surface material, we move further away from the history represented in the toy. Subtleties to their features will be lost with time. Dolls are, after all, toys that are meant to be played with by their original owners. Through moves and mishaps, it is to be expected that dolls would be packed away, forgotten after years of joy. Through dolls, we see what was the ideal of style and appearance. Dolls show us an ideal for that particular time and place. Most cloth outfits also succumb to the ravages of time and require patching and cleaning. If a doll has been involved in a fire or flood, the original clothes would most likely be ruined. Especially if the joints have knobs or complicated joint fixtures. And while it’s quite easy to reset the eyes if they have moved out of place, the job becomes more difficult if the eyes fall into the back of the doll’s head or fall out and get damaged. Once she thoroughly examines the damage on the doll, she will respond with a firm quote. If the price range is acceptable to you, the restorer will provide her physical address and detailed packing and shipping instructions. Once the restorer examines the damage in the photos, she will respond with an approximate price range.

Most professional restorers can sculpt the missing pieces and fragments. The photos have to include images of the entire doll, the damaged parts, and all the broken pieces you have. Antique doll repair is an art and craft that requires a long time to perfect. That’s when a professional porcelain / antique restorer enters the picture. But what about the glue lines, the bumps, the missing fragments?

Some believe that if a doll is missing a finger, it’s just a matter of reattaching it using a powerful adhesive. Any well-made bisque or porcelain doll has detailed the eyelashes and lips, and its cheek blush is not too heavy. A good quality bisque material should not have many specks, tiny holes, or freckle-like discolorations on the surface. Dolls from the same manufacturer often vary in price and style. If a doll’s head is made of bisque, the doll is referred to as “bisque”. It has a matte finish and gives the doll’s skill a human-like texture.
