Why did you repair the object?

This is a Nicholas Mosse small milk jug – it is expensive table wear (about €30)
This milk jug has been hanging around our house, broken, for one year. We did not want to throw it away because it is a nicely crafted jug. We had the pencil grip in the house and realized it was a good fit.
