This is a thread for damaged pottery that was still worth buying, I think it will get more pics than any other pottery thread and that's just my stuff!

This Bernard Rooke has a 3 inch crack at the rim. The idea that this was done by a clumsy charity shop volunteer haunts me. Otherwise its a beauty - 12 inches tall.

This Satsuma bowl has had a few knocks but the workmanship is phenomenal. Apparently its worth almost nothing.

The base.

This piece is a family heirloom. Rumour has it that a drunk uncle was pouring and, well...

1950s bowl by Gunnar Nylund for Rörstrand - production second with some iffy glazing to the interior, as well as two chips to the base.

But it's very stylish, the chips are invisible unless you turn it over, the interior flaw is easily covered with fruit, and it set me back a whopping £5.
