Miniature Child's Jug with 'Make do' Mended Handle Antique Victorian
Miniature Jug with 'Make do' Mended Handle Antique Victorian
This little miniature jug dates to the mid Victorian period and depicts a country church in the landscape. It was clearly some child's pride and joy as when the handle broke off it has been wonderfully crudely repaired with glue and metal staples. Far from detracting from the piece this loving but crude repair somehow enhances it.
