I would stick it on zip. I fit's a clean break then one small drop of Superglue will do the trick, hold the head in place as superglue only works under pressure (5 sec) and wipe away any excess with damp cloth. You will never know it was broken. You re not going to sell them and it will make you feel good to see it back on.

Honest Crawford, thanks for your 'top tip' how to repair it.

but it now serves as a good reminder broken, for me to be more careful.

It wont get lost as there's only me here.

On Sunday, i had a funny five minutes (well, more like two hours) of cleaning, tidying, moving furniture, hanging pictures and reorganising shelves.

i'll do my best, some i don't know. Includes...

left cabinet:
top shelf: unknown yellow vase, maybe govancroft but can't read the mark, German deco circular candlestick, Maria Beckett seagull pot, Rockingham ware flask, Marazion vase.
2nd shelf: two Robert Goldsmith Selborne Pottery jugs, german stoneware vase and Westerwald tall handled jug/vase.
3rd shelf: Furstenberg plate, raku vase, small studio pot marked RS and handled pouring jug by Warwick Parker
bottom shelf: unknown (presumed Portsmouth area) studio pottery.

right cabinet:
top shelf: Chelsea pottery plate, two chinese pots (presumed 20thC copies of earlier wares).
2nd shelf: unknown pottery 4-sided vase based on a Chinese form, marked but unknown studio teapot, two oriental pots
3rd shelf: 3 candle holders by unknown, Alan Ward vase, old redware dish, unknown lidded pot with iridescent manganese interior.
4th shelf: lidded pot with MC mark - possibly Mick Casson, spotty bowl by David Crimes, spotted German vase circa 1900.

some named things, but i now find i'm buying stuff simply because i like the form or glaze rather than just buying because of its maker.

for those who don't have room for cabinets.
these Cobridge pots are kept safe and well lit by displaying them inside the double glazing

but for everyone else, I fitted secondary double glazing to triple glaze and soundproof a bedroom so the pots simply sit on the window sill and a sliding glazing unit seals them in.

It looks like quite a good Idea Dan ,..........err I think , does tend to cut off the bottom half of the pots though , still looks ok , but bear in mind you are the only person in the universe with that glazing Laughter
