This is the finished lid fitted back to the jar. Because we repair porcelain with dental epoxies even the ring of the finished repair sounds original

Another angle of finished repair

This is one view of the finished repair. We were able to complete a flawless fix.

It is very important to make sure all parts glued together are on the same level and match as closely as possible. Some times when the break occurs the internal stresses of the porcelain warp the parts from their original shape.

Some of the repairs necessitate repainting the image and reguilding

After the pieces were glued back together and cleaned of all residue it was necessary to replace some missing parts

This piece was broken into almost 20 pieces. Most people would throw this away but it had sentimental value to the customer
