Miniature Davenport watering can, c.1860

English porcelain miniature watering can made by Davenport in the mid-1800s. Finely painted with multicolor floral and scrollwork design with gilt accents. Measures 2-3/4″ high to tip of moth form lid finial and is 3-1/2″ wide from end to end. Stamped in red with DAVENPORT in a banner with an anchor, dating it from 1850 to 1870. Three brass staples on the handle, with the aid of some sloppily applied glue, hold the three broken pieces back together again.

    I really made a deal and said no more looking at previous posts I had missed, but this one must be such a rare and almost impossible fix. Yet they fixed it. What happened to that attitude in today’s world, I wonder??
