Rocky Mountain Retinning re-attached one handle of an antique pot with brand-new rivets. Can you tell which one?
The pot’s seller stated that one of the handles had a loose rivet. I sent the pot to Erik Undiks at Rocky Mountain Retinning for restoration and he advised that all three rivets on that handle needed to be replaced.
When I got the repaired stockpot back from Erik, his work was so good that I couldn’t tell which handle had been fixed! Which one do you think it is? (Click the photos to enlarge them to take a good look.)

This post has been up for almost a week — thank you to everyone who has been voting! Isn’t it interesting that it’s hard to tell which handle is original and which is Erik’s repair work? I couldn’t tell either — I had to reach out to Erik with photos to confirm which handle had been redone. It’s a real compliment to his work that he was able to match the original style so well!
