Cybis Arion Boy on Dolphin - Repair Broken and Missing Finger

This figurine arrived with missing miniature finger. If repaired properly, it's original value of approximately $5,000 can be restored. Due to the very small finger surface area, a metal pin must be instructed through the base of the finger and through the newly made ceramic finger. The precision and use of the right instrumentation is essential to the success of this or any figurines repair and restorations such as Hummel, Lladro, Lenox, Royal Doulton Lomonosov or Sibania figurines.
