    For ho2cultcha:
    Antique(?) ginger jar I picked up some time ago (mid last year??) at a thrift-store. I finally re-repaired the lid, as the last person's repair didn't quite hold up and had turned dark yellow. Eventually, I'll probably fill the gap in where you see those chucks out, but for now I just have it back together with some sort of semi-flexible resin(?) that dries by UV light and isn't supposed to yellow. You sure don't get much in the tubes....

      Good repair on this Ginger Jar SpiritBear! :^D You're right it looks very close to the pattern on Pete's(ho2cultcha), Narcissus Pot. Good call! :^)

      You know, I haven't gotten any email updates on people's comments today though I have the check-box hit to receive them.
      I still need to fill in the gap and paint the inner line to hide the ugly yellow, but it will look good when done.
