RESTORED VASE BACK ON DISPLAY Can you tell the difference? Well, one is a 17th Century Chinese porcelain vase before it was smashed by a museum visitor - the other is the same vase post extensive restoration! The vase, from the Qing Dynasty, was broken back in January when Nick Flynn crashed into it at the Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge, having tripped over his shoelace! A clean up operation ensued taking two-and-a-half-days, after which specialist ceramic restorer Penny Bendall glued together all 113 pieces of the vase - now included in an exhibition about art restoration. Another two vases were also damaged in the incident - they too will be restored by Penny. The three vases are part of a set of five with an estimated value of between $36,000 (£200,000) and $540,000 (£300,000). (CRB/WN/IG) Supplied by WENN
