Figurines and Dolls

Figurines

Figurines like Hummel and Lladro and are molded or sculpted collectibles often created in ceramic. Even treasured piggy banks or keepsake figurines can be damaged accidentally or as a result of improper shipping, storage, or display. Wiebold Studio repairs and restores any figurines in your collection so you can share them with the next generation.

Heirloom Dolls. A Case of Too Much Love?

She has a sweet face, flowing gold hair, and crystal blue eyes that open and close. She was the doll your mother (or great-grandmother!) carried around as a girl. But so much love can leave a treasured porcelain doll with broken fingers, chips, and cracks. Improper storage, shipping, and display can also cause injury and deterioration of dolls.

Preventative maintenance can help preserve figurines and dolls. We offer these important
suggestions

Suggestions for Helping You Preserve Figurines and Dolls

  • Display your dolls and figurines in a low-traffic area, as the vibrations from people walking may disrupt the stability of your items.
  • When storing or moving your dolls place them in acid-free, lignin-free tissue and store them in acid-free cardboard boxes.
  • Any box used for storage should be strong enough to support the weight of the objects inside and should have a secure bottom.
  • The storage container should also be large enough to enclose the entire object.
  • Objects should not be allowed to bump or fall against each other.
  • Handle your items sparingly. Each time a piece is handled for cleaning or transport there is a greater risk of breakage through accidents and mishandling.
Contact a conservator for intervention if:
  • Parts are missing or broken.
  • Paint on your items is chipped and scratched.
  • Your items have lost their original integrity due to dirt and other environmental exposures.
