Antiques- Make Do & Mend

Centuries ago mending old pottery was often a necessity. You just didn’t throw away something that could still be used. So the bowl or plate would be taken to a skilled person who would use metal staples to make the repairs.These imperfect pieces are now becoming very popular among collectors…myself included.
