For collections

We look after a range of collections, from varied factories, potters and periods, achieving a unified conservation strategy based on the needs of all of the objects and owner's requirments for the collection.

We like to understand how the objects are to be enjoyed, handled and stored, so that our conservation approach may be tailored.
