another chipped platter question

I also have a chipped platter question. A friend brought me a platter to
look at. It is from Portugal, she brought it with her to Canada. It looks
very old and has a mostly blue, very delicate pattern. I assumed that it
would be earthenware. She asked if there was anything that I could suggest
to fill in the chipped areas on the rim with colour. I wouldn't even
consider putting it into a kiln. My instinct is to leave it alone and to
suggest that she look for someone who specializes in restoration. What do
you think? I am really enjoying clayart it is a wealth of information.

for today)
