Jay Blades and the team bring family heirlooms back to life. Kirsten Ramsay takes on a very rare Royal Doulton figurine of a First World War soldier.
Today in the Repair Shop, Jay Blades and the team bring three treasured family heirlooms, and the memories they hold, back to life.
Ceramics conservator Kirsten Ramsay takes on a very rare Royal Doulton figurine of a First World War soldier, once owned by the last master pottery thrower of the Doulton factory. Now the pride and joy of his grandson, the soldier has been through the wars - a fall several years ago knocked off his head. But before Kirsten can start her repair she must undo a previous fix, allegedly done with glue made from egg white.
Resident horologist Steven Fletcher and furniture restorer Will Kirk combine their skills to piece back together a small long case clock, which arrives with three sisters in three separate pieces. And silversmith Brenton West tackles a treasured magnifying glass, once used for picking winners from the paper.
