Crystal Repair Antique Cut Glass Dishes by FryJanuary 13th, 2010 Posted in All Repair Projects, Chipped Glass Repair, chipped glassware
The H. C. Fry Glass company made beautiful cut glass . Henry Fry had the biggest and one of the best cutting rooms of the day . The factory was built in 1901 . The three plates pictured here came for that cutting room in Rochester Penna. They were chipped and needed minor repairs. Crystal repair on the best of the best is a very rewarding.
The saw tooth design is very easy to chip. I used small grinding stones that came from the Hawkes Glass Company in Corning NY to grind out the chips.
Then with cork , horse hair and felt wheels I polished the cystal back to a brilliant shine.
