You’re the best!!!! My giraffe looks flawless. Thank you so much.
AMAZING! Thank you so much, Henri. The vase looks better than we had imagined. You are a true artist and a professional. May God bless your hands and eyes so that you may continue to use your talents to glorify Him with such works of beauty.
Just got home and looked at glass hat repair. Great job! You cannot see when you bonded the pieces together. Thanks.
I wanted to let you know that the bowl arrived safe and sound! I am truly amazed at the restoration…especially in person. If I didn’t know better it looks as if you bought a brand new piece! I cannot give enough accolades to you for this superb work.
I am so happy I found you to restore this piece!! I can’t wait for my mother to see it on Sunday.
All the best to you!
Thank you for this additional reference and the previous ones. Fantastic reviews on all accounts I’ve checked out!! All your clients rave about your amazing artistry, attention to detail and honest business practices.
I will pack the pieces this weekend and send early in the week. I will call once in the mail. Let me know when they arrive. Then, once you’ve had time to look the actual items over, please email your assessment of what the charges will be. I am thrilled at the chance to work with you.
You truly have a gift and I can't tell you how thrilled I am to have my piece back- good as new. I'm so glad I found you and wish you good health and happiness.
I'm very pleased with your work from what you had to work with. Obviously you are very skilled at what you do. I was very happy you were able to ship before your vacation, Thanks and I will recommend you to whomever may be in need of your services.
I just wanted to thank you for the SUPERB work you did on repairing my art piece. I literally cannot see where the break is. You are a true artist! Plus, the marble stand you made for me is spectacular. It perfectly matches my living room, and makes my art piece look even better. I am very very happy with the results of your work. You are a miracle worker! :)
I went on your site to finally put a comment praising the work you did on my grandmother’s English Tea Service. It was the one with farm and natural scenes circa 1820 that you finished in March.
I couldn’t find a spot where I could write something. So, feel free to copy this email to where ever it may help advertise your exceptional talent! I truly feel your work was extraordinary and as promised, the repairs appear as if the piece is brand new! I am thoroughly pleased with the final product. Such a restoration will be enjoyed by my family for generations to come.
Your customer service was also amazing. You kept close contact with me during the process and delivered the product intact as promised and on budget. Seeing my restored pieces took my breath away! I would recommend you highly.
Thank you so much for working with me.
Henri is an absolute PRO – a true modern day renaissance man of art restoration. I have brought projects to him ranging from a completely broken sculpture to decorative Venetian art. His ability to see exactly how to approach each fine art piece and devise the perfect balance of materials, textures, colors and surface finishes to restore to their original form is brilliant.
Thanks again for a great job and best wishes,
Rhonda H., Los Angeles

The crystal stem just arrived in great shape and it is perfect. Our thanks again and we will certainly keep you in mind if we ever have additional needs and will alert our friends as well. Well done
I found it. Thank goodness. The little box was sitting on a back shelve in our stockroom. It looks oh so good. Thank you so much. You do amazing work.
My father is very happy with your work. Your craftsmanship is beautiful!!! Thank you,
Dear Henri Laborde,
I just received the glass you repaired for me. It is beautiful! I can't even see where it was broken. This is a very special surprise today. I have been looking for someone to do this for a very long time as it belongs to my friend. It is part of a set that her mother-in-law from Paris, France had given to her many years ago. When I saw your name I hoped that I had found the right artist. I am delighted with your work.

Well, the horse is home again safely and in a more secure spot in our home.
I had to thank you once again for all you did to make it look so "perfect". I never dreamed it would look like this again until I met you!!!
THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!
I received the plate today, and I am so happy to see it. It's just beautiful. You are really an artist! I never imagined that you could make the break really invisible. Thank you so much.
I've been meaning to thank you for fixing my ceramic bottle. We was amazed how we couldn't even tell it was ever broken. Thank you! Have a wonderful day!
To whom it may concern:
I was in Amsterdam on a once in a lifetime trip two years ago and was able to take a side trip to Delft. I purchased a vase that the owner of the factory claimed would no longer be produced as the person who designed it had recently died. It was exquisite! This past summer some friends and their guests stayed at my cabin and the vase was handled and ended up badly chipped and cracked. When I found it, I was so distressed I was beside myself! I researched and contacted the firm in Delft – and the original information given to me was correct. This was a vase not able to be reproduced. I searched and found Henri Laborde and communicated with him regarding his work on restoring art pieces; I was blown away when several weeks later the piece was returned to me and it looks absolutely perfect! Not just close to perfect… PERFECT! His fee was incredibly reasonable, and Henri’s repair work with this porcelain vase is truly remarkable. Without hesitation I would take anything and everything of value that has been damaged to Henri first!
