Enamel Damage and repair
« on: February 01, 2017, 09:56:16 PM »
 Notoriously difficult once damage has occurred,many of our nursing badges have a vitreous enamel finish.This is essentially a form of glass and I have previously accepted damage as just one of these things.After many attempts to find some means of effecting a repair that does't look too amateur I have tracked down a specialist firm in Birmingham that does re enamel badges.
Gladman & Norman;    have re enamelled three Nightingale school of Nursing badges for me and I have uploaded photos to the album pages of before and after shots for comparison. They will quote for specific repairs but costs are around the 150 to 200 range each!

Excellent addition Peter.  It is good to know of a genuinely authentic repair service.  And yes, the prices may be reasonably high but then that may well deter the irresponsible - not a bad thing.  Maybe a little more in our next news - maybe even an article in the offing - volunteer authors are particularly welcome...
