Porcelain Repair and Restoration
Porcelain is a hard but delicate material that is made by heating a special type of clay at a high temperature to become white and shiny. It is used to make cups, plates, decorative figurines, and vases. Notable names of porcelain items include Lladro, Nippon, RS Prussia, Limoges and many more.

Glass & Crystal Repair and Restoration
Glass is a hard, brittle and usually transparent substance commonly made from sand heated with chemicals. It is used to make cups, plates, decorative figurines, and vases. When Italian glasscutters developed the technique of cutting designs into glass, it was called crystal because it had a shape that looks like the crystalline of a cut gemstone.
At Keller China Restoration, we can repair and restore your glass and crystal pieces including stemware, lampshades, figurines, cut crystal bowls and vases. By removing chips on stemware and bowls and bonding broken lamp shades, vases or more, our glass grinding and repair department is here to help. We use ultra-violet UV bonding agents for strong, clear bonds and professional grinding tools to remove chips. We work on Waterford, Steuben, Swarovski and many others.
If you have heirloom glassware or sentimental crystal ornaments that are chipped or damaged our glass department will be at your service.
