    Dr. Gomer's Restoration Service

    Considering having a broken artifact restored to its former glory? There are a number of companies offering this kind of service and one of the best (many would say the best) is “Dr Gomer”.

    Thornton Pyles (aka “Dr Gomer”) and his brother Teben run this business from Branford, Florida and can professionally restore lithic items, pottery, bone and shell.

    Details here:

    Dr Gomer prefers not to restore artifacts which are less than 50% complete, will give free estimates from photographs, typically operates with a 90-day turn-round and supplies a digital “before” and “after” certificate with the restored artifact.

    Click on “Business Policy” on the home page of the website to see terms and conditions and “Restoration Gallery” to see examples of the kind of work Dr Gomer has undertaken in the past.

    I keep six honest serving-men (they taught me all I knew); Their names are What and Why and When and How and Where and Who.

    Their work is amazing, can be removed and is permanently marked via UV materials. Only a supreme artist can restore the work and the material's color/translucency, like agatized coral!
