Mums Victoria

Post by kiter65 »

I know this has been covered before but it’s happened to my mums :thumbdown:

Image

Having read previous post I was going to glue it back in place :thumbup:
That was until I got it to pieces, that is one delicate bit of metal

Image

So with mum more than happy with it, it is going to stay like this,
Personally I quite like it :thumbup:

Well done for even attempting it Richard !
I think it looks brilliant without the original piece.

I agree! That’s a beautiful dial on it’s own, without that metal bit to distract from it.

Good job, Richard! :thumbup:

Sorry, but whenever I see this thread I want to add something to the title...
