Testimonials

“Lynne Edge undertook work for us on three important bisque Derby figure groups. They had 30 years worth of ingrained dirt and old repairs which had become unsightly. Lynne’s substantial experience was reassuring with such fragile ceramic objects. Lynne kept us updated on progress and on completion provided a treatment report and before and after photographs”.

Moira A Lindsay, Assistant Curator (Art), University of Liverpool, Art & Heritage Collections,Victoria Gallery & Museum

“Whether it is an elaborate porcelain figure, an oriental plate or a Victorian glass table centre, the standard of Lynne’s work has always been excellent and of museum standard. The accompanying reports are detailed and professional”

Peter Woods, Ryan-Woods Antiques, Rodney Street, Liverpool

“Lynne Edge is a talented and experienced ceramic restorer. The professional restoration that she has done for the Bluecoat Display Centre has always been to the highest possible standard. She works along strictly ethical lines and always gives an honest appraisal before attempting any job. I would whole heartedly recommend her skills”.

Maureen Bampton, Director - Bluecoat Display Centre, Liverpool

"We are very pleased with the conservation work Lynne carried out on two of the Peruvian pots in our collections.  She kept us up to date with progress, contacted us promptly with any queries, and provided comprehensive written and photographic records of the conservation she had undertaken"

Michelle Hill, Collections Access Officer, Warrington Museum & Art Gallery

''Many, many thanks Lynne for your excellent craftsmanship in repairing a treasured family Earthenware Wedding Jug (1835). For 70 years the broken handle has laid inside the jug, rattling every time it was handled. The spout was also chipped in places.  On collecting the jug I was so pleased with the result of your skill, and when at home, the family were also amazed at the perfection of the repair. Thank you also for the information on its cleaning.  I will highly recommend her services “.

Mike Johnston and Family, North Wales.

"I engaged Lynne Edge to do conservation work on nine significant pieces. She undertook this work with care,
providing me with straightforward conditon reports and providing a clear outline of the work needed and of the cost involved. Lynne kept me informed about the progress of the work during the time the pieces were in her care. When the work was completed I saw that my trust had not been misplaced. Lynne had done a great job."

Private Collector, Manchester

“As a family we do not have many valuable antiques – just a few treasured family possessions which have come down to us from parents and grandparents. When we managed to break two of our much loved ‘bits and pieces’ I was very upset. To find Lynne Edge was wonderful. Nothing appears to be beyond her skills – Chinese porcelain and oriental glass, both were repaired and restored to their former glory and can now be handed down to the next generation with confidence. Thank you Lynne.”
