Boing Boing: Museum shoelace trip shatters three Qing vases: “Museum shoelace trip shatters three Qing vases
A man with a loose shoelace fell down a flight of stairs in the Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge, England on Monday and shattered three 17th/18th century Qing dynasty vases. The museum has vowed to glue them back together.

‘It was a most unfortunate and regrettable accident, but we are glad that the visitor involved was able to leave the museum unharmed,’ said Duncan Robinson, the Fitzwilliam’s director.

The museum declined to identify the man who had tripped on a loose shoelace Wednesday.

Asked about the porcelain vases, Margaret Greeves, the museum’s assistant director, said: ‘They are in very, very small pieces, but we are determined to put them back together.’
