My brother John got this from an antique dealer friend of his. It had broken into several pieces. John glued it back together and asked if I could restore it. I told him I would make it better than original, because the original paint job wasn't very detailed. It took a few hours in the bath tub scrubbing with a tooth brush and an exacto knife to get the old flaked paint off. Then about a week to repaint. John and Pat were pleasantly surprised when I gave it back. It now sits in their bush garden in the front of their gazebo.
