Broken into many pieces the antique glass came in for repair. It has been in the family along time and met so much could I repair it.  I told them it would not be perfect but I would do my best .  The first thing I needed to do was give it a bath. Then I dill out the broken fitter ( stopper ) out of the bottom. Then came the  fitting of the pieces to see what was missing.

If you look close you can see the cracks . It will take just a little creative decoration and it can be displayed for all to enjoy.  Antique crystal with the copper wheel engraving the quality of this piece are rare. Broken crystal after restoration doesn’t all ways come out flawless  but you do have to look close to see the repair. Send in the flowers.
