This antique glass perfume bottle had a broken neck . I cut off the old broken glass neck and polished the bottle . Then I make a new glass neck for the perfume bottle. The antique crystal perfume bottle was as good as new. I make new stoppers and daubers for antique glass perfume bottles but making a neck is a little different. If they had sent it to me in the first place they would not have broken the neck trying to get the stopper out. It takes patients when removing a stuck stopper.
I was told this is from a fire engine . Its is made of flashed red glass and has a beveled edge and a number six engraved on it. Flash glass is made by layering two colored glasses together in this case red and clear. I have restored many carriage lamps over the years I wish I had photographed them now. I also make globes for oil lamp like on the railroad.
Broken crystal candlestick needs restoration. This has two broken candle cups caused by letting the candle burn down to low and the heat from the flame breaks the glass. First I ground off what was left of the broken candle cups and polished it flat. Then I made two new candle holders and attached them . Antique glass repair is a big part of my buisness. I like fixing things that other glass shop said can’t be fixed. This customer was told it was irreparable. This was broken not chipped so a shop that can only grind and polish is unable to restore a pressed glass candlestick such as this.
Antique curio cabinet with bent glass panels . The broken curved glass side panel had to be replaced. They are usualy tighter radius than the door. If you have a broken door just send the whole door to me and I can install the glass in the door and then send it back to you.
Broken neck and ear no problem .
Some days I work on animals only my shop looks like a Zoo

Depession glass bowl with two large pieces broken off and some smaller pieces missing first I glued the broken pieces back in and the ground and polished what was left. Pressed glass is sentimental because it was not expensive so every one had some. Grama then left it to the kids. I have little red shot glasses with handles that I got from my grama. Had my first shot of whiskey grama gave me at sixteen . It was awfull then and still is. Repairing depression glass or pressed glass is not cost effective but you have to save it.
