Dear Luba,
Am so excited! The Hummel arrived today and it is perfect. The miracle restoration you provided brought tears to my eyes. I could not be happier.
You told me that the repair would be so good that I would not be able to tell where the breaks were and you were absolutely correct. It was worth every penny. Its sentimental value far exceeds any monetary one, because it was purchased by my parents to represent my sister and me. Since she, along with my parents, is deceased, it comforts me to have it as a remembrance.My heartfelt thanks to you!
Sincerely,
Kathy Mackey,

Dear Luba and Alex,
The doll arrived this morning. I carefully unpacked it
and found it in excellent shape, just like I remember it before the accident.
Thank you very much for the restoration and the service. We will be most careful from now on. But if we ever need your help in the future, we know where to find you.
P.S. My wife does not want to see it now since she would like a glass of champagne in her hand for
the viewing ūüôā
Sincerely,
Philip Reynolds,

Take care, and ‚ÄúTHANKS‚ÄĚ again.

Dear Luba,
I received the restored buffalo by mail several days ago. ¬†Your restoration of the buffalo is the most amazing hand-held thing that I have ever seen. ¬†It is a wonder. ¬†The repair is perfect even under the scrutiny of a jeweler’s loupe and with the repaired area held in bright light. ¬†You have created a work of pride for me and I thank ¬†you.¬†I wish you and yours all of the best for the holidays and through the new year.

Dear Luba,
Words cannot describe how appreciative I am to you for the most professional and expert way in which you approached my situation, and how you went about helping me to repair the lamp in such a refined and expert fashion.

I wish you much success in the future, and of course if there is anyone that would like a reference of my experience in working with you, don’t hesitate to contact me! My best to you, in much appreciation.

Dear Luba,I intended to write you sooner, but have been busy and time just flew away. I just wanted to tell you what a great restoration you did on my majolica standing boy with tray. He’s now standing on a tall pedestal in my living room. I talk to him as I pass him by. He’s in a perfect place in a beautiful room. Your artistry is superb and this restoration is something to be proud of. We wish you many more successful years.Sincere regards,

Dear Luba,
You may not remember me but I’m hoping you haven’t fixed too many squirrels and might recall this item. Several months ago, you fixed a squirrel figurine that was badly damaged. He sits by the window in our kitchen and every time I look at him, I am amazed at the quality and perfection of your work. You truly are gifted and I want to thank you so much for fixing the squirrel. It is so nice to know that there is someone out there that can perform work of this quality. I understand why so many people speak so highly of your work. Thanks again for putting him back together! I just wanted you to know that your talent and work continue to bring enjoyment.
With great appreciation,

Dear Alex, dear Luba!I got the Limoges pot from UPS today (Thursday, July 30. 2009); it’s SO beautiful, and in perfect shape. And the restoration work is just astoundingly fine. I can’t thank you enough for such excellent work and good service.

Dear Luba,Thank you so much for your great work! The one and only perfect pair in the world is now in the National Palace museum in Beijing, China. In spite of its diminutive size, this little wine cup is a national treasure and one of the most valuable and rare pieces in the museum’s porcelain collection. I’m sure you have handled and restored many valuables pieces in the past, and will no doubt restore many more in the future. But this was a true rendezvous with history. Again, I thank you for a superb job! All the best.J.C.

Dear Luba,We just wanted to let you know how pleased we are with the figurine, Victoria, that you restored for us.When I took it out of our curio cabinet with the intention of giving it to our daughter, Victoria) I was shocked to see it shattered. I bought it shortly after Vicki was born with the intention of giving it to her some day. You can imagine my disappointment when I went to take it out of my curio. I have never had anything like that happen before.I was apprehensive about it being fixed. I can’t tell you how thrilled I was with the job you did on the figurine. It looked like it did originally. You did an excellent job and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts.Thank you, thank you, thank you…Cordially,Lois and Tom Fagan

Dear Luba,My package of (formerly) broken items was waiting for me when I got home from work today. I cannot believe what you have done. Everything looks so perfect – I cannot even see a line where even a crack might have been before. I only wish you had included some business cards in the box so that I could give them to my friends. Your work is just perfect and I couldn’t be happier.Thank you so much for your splendid work.Best regards,Julie Schwait

I am overwhelmed.Very gratefully,Patricia Johnson

Dear Luba,You’ve done an outstanding job. The chandelier is as good as new. I bought in Germany 25 years ago and I’m not sure how much it’s worth now. Probably more than I think. But it’s got more sentimental value than monetary. It was my wife’s favorite piece, and now it’s my favorite. Thanks again.Jason D. Burrow
