20th century, France

The three wise monkeys (also known as "the three little monkeys") is a symbol of Asian origin consisting of three monkeys, which each cover a different part of the face with hands: the first the eyes, the second the mouth and the third the ears. They form a sort of pictorial maxim: 'Do not see evil, do not hear evil, not to say evil'. To the one following this maxim, it would come good.

  • kettle was seriously damaged during transportation: the top of the lid was completely broken off. When I carefully examined the damage site, I found traces of the repair that was already available
