    I bought this mixing bowl at the old Elizabeth David cookshop (Covent Garden) in the mid-1980s; it still has the price sticker on (£4.80) and managed to survive 25 years of moves and racketing about unscathed, before I chipped it in the sink a few years ago here. I slammed the cupboard door in which it is stored tonight and it cracked clean in two.
    Irreplaceable - I can't find another like it

    ... and yes, I do know my sink needs cleaning, thanks

    Looks like a clean break. A good glue might do it.

    Agreed and a competent restorer would make it invisible if it means that much to you....and I could understand why it would!

    Somebody get the straitjacket - the overwhelming grief at the loss of a beloved bowl has finally made him lose it.

    Hey, Paul, I feel your pain... My sister used to be a potter and made some beautiful things.. Over the last, 35 years I've broken all but one of her pieces.

    Hope you can glue it!

    Suomi - you've lost me. Ketamine I can do. Excellent knocker-outer of small bitey things! You have to make sure that they stay asleep past the pink elephants stage though or it all goes a bit wrong.

    For the great pottery disaster I recommend Araldite, I've stuck lots of heavy duty things back together with it.

    all things have their time, BB, and clearly it was this one's ... which is a roundabout way of saying, I shan't be making the effort ...

    having said that, a forum member has kindly offered to have a sniff around a particular kitchen shop to se if they're still available ... :smile:
