Steuben Crystal Snail Repair

Thursday, November 20th, 2008 Posted in All Repair Projects, Glueings, Steuben Crystal | Comments Off on Steuben Crystal Snail Repair

We  were challenged to repair this badly broken sculpture brought in by a customer.  It was brought to us in many pieces.  The biggest hurdle of this project was to make it look like it was brand new and wasn’t repaired.  We implemented a new design element that used blue cobalt to meet the customer’s expecations.  Please see the repair gallery below.
