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.
