    Hi Andrew from the UK, I really enjoyed your blog. I thought you might like to see this Wedgwood coffee(?) pot which has mountains of rivets in it it was in the back of a cupboard at my mother’s house, I can only think that my forefathers valued it a lot to have gone to the trouble of having all these rivets put in. I have no idea how old it is, I’m still searching for what Wedgwood pattern it is. https://www.pinterest.co.uk/pin/426153183495623412

  6. Hi Rachel,

    Thanks for the link to your mother’s seriously riveted pot! I love seeing pieces with a ridiculous amount of staples and this one doesn’t disappoint. I believed the “china menders” charged per rivet/staple so it must have been an important piece to the original owner. I’d love to know how many staples were used to keep it together.

    I am glad you like the blog. I certainly have fun with it.

    All best,
