As I have explained in previous articles, porcelain figurines lose a high percentage of their economic value when they are restored. A restored work, logically, can not have the same economic value as a porcelain figurine that is in perfect condition.
Hence, it is more efficient to purchase, if you have the financial capacity, a new figurine of porcelain, with the discounts offered by insurance, in case of breakage.
