This Steuben crystal vase was sent to me for cleaning. I thought it was sick. ( cloudy from hard water stains) It was not sick it was scratched someone tried to clean it with an abrasive. They made it a lot worse by putting in thousands of scratches up and down in side the vase. I was able to carefully polish them out . Steuben Crystal has one of the highest lead content this is why the glass is clear.
I polished out the scratches on the inside of the vase and then I polish out the scratches on the bottom of the vase .
A beautiful red glass ” FABERGE EGG” with a broken base was sent to me for repair. This piece was made in Russia St. Petersburg as stated on the label. The copper wheel engraving of the double eagle is the main design with a very delicate boarder on the base .
Pieces had broken off the base and were lost.
I use a matching red glass to fabricate a new base . The engraved boarder matched the design of the Faberge Egg. Glass restoration like this is fun. A little creative thinking and for thought the glass egg will go back on display.
