Antique Glass Repair- broken stopperMay 5th, 2009 Posted in All Repair Projects, Antique Glass Repair, Blowen Glass Replacements, broken glassware, Chandelier Repair, Chipped Glass Repair, Stopper Repair
An antique glass decanter with a broken stopper was brought in for repair. The stopper broke off many years ago and was lost. The owners still had the silver top to the stopper, but a new glass bottom had to be made. I started with a glass rod a little larger than the neck of the decanter. I ground the end of the glass rod to fit the neck of the decanter. I made a stem on top of the stopper through heat and manipulation. This was fitted in to the silver top. The other chips on the bottle were left alone because they all had a story to go with them.
Starting with a solid glass rod I shape the end .
