Antique Glass Chandelier Broken Crystal Arms

Antique Glass Chandelier Broken Crystal Arms

December 30th, 2008 Posted in All Repair Projects, Chandelier Repair

The movers broke several antique crystal arms on this Chandelier .The Chandelier was very dirty and rusty . The pins through the prisms had gotten wet and rusted. Repairing antique glass arms was the easy part.Cleaning and rewiring was the time consuming  part. I used white cloth covered wire per original . The clear plastic wire is less noticable but I like to keep  as authentic as possible .  Two of the strands of prisms were missing  I got lucky and had old ones in stock. I disassembled ,cleaned the glass and polished  the chrome pieces. When moving antique glass chandeliers they should be taken apart to relocate. We installed the restored chandelier in the dinning room .
