About 4 years ago, I knocked this English teapot off a warmer it was sitting on....yes It broke off a good part of the edge at the top. Did I cry? No, was I upset? Of course! Is it the end of the world? No! I will figure out something to do with it in another way.......It never occurred to me that it could be repaired.
My point is this: in life, some things get broken. Some things go wrong. Some things can get fixed and others can't. The key is to move on. If you can learn from the problem - you can benefit. I should not have lifted the tray it was sitting on without taking it off the warmer- that was my mistake. I have learned again!
This is really a reposted story from back in 2011 but I want to tell you that a porcelain doll "doctor" is working on this teapot which had a piece chipped off right along that ruffled rim. I am excited to see the repair and will share it when I get it back. I just wanted everyone to know - if a teapot has part chipped off it can be fixed.
