Antique Glass Decanter Repair

October 6th, 2009 Posted in All Repair Projects, Antique Glass Repair, Blowen Glass Replacements, Broken Decanter Repair, Glueings

This antique glass decanter  from the 1880 was in bad shape. It had a broken neck and missing pieces from the lip.  The customer was skeptical that I could repair an antique cut glass decanter in such bad shape. I can waite  to forward this post to him with the before and after pictures of his decanter.  This is a very old and very  good cut glass decanter and it would be a shame not to repair it. I cut off the broken part of the neck and then made a new neck and lip. I attach the new neck and fit the stopper.  If you didn’t know it was repaired you would pour a drink and just enjoy.
