Brian this question is for you since you posted in the BL about not liking restoration. I'm waiting to retire and do a restoration course for when I have more time on my hands.

So you would not restore this piece that cost me £20 ten years ago and the M^$%^%%$&*r seller on EB wrapped it in a sheet of newspaper and stuck some stamps on it?

But it such fun and at 55cm Chelsea JEM Owl platter, you won't find another I bet?

Edit: you can see the box in the background, that was it no packing.

I have the same conundrum. This is the eBay photo of a Howard Bissell charger that arrived smashed due to poor packing. Still not decided what to do about it. If it was in just a few chunks then I’d superglue it myself, but there are some small fiddly chips too and I’m a bit ham fisted when it comes to gluing. I usually end up gluing my fingers together

Of the thousands of pots I have, the only piece I've ever had restored...

I don't think it's that hard, you just need to be taught the right techniques and have the right kit + a modicum of talent and some patience.

As always I've been watching YouTube and this woman explains a lot, she has loads of vids

I think the answer is to repair it yourself so the shards aren’t lost, but use a glue that can be removed if someone decides to get it professionally done.
