Crystal vase repair broken off foot

Crystal vase repair broken off foot

December 31st, 2009 Posted in All Repair Projects, broken glassware, Broken Stem, Glueings
This very large crystal vase was sent to me for repair. If I had  bonded the two pieces together you would be able to see the repair. I decided the best way to repair this crystal vase was to cut off the bottom and reattached it to the foot. This crystal vase was originally bonded to the foot. The repair will make bond between the crystal vase and glass foot even stronger and less likely to break again.
