Glass repair Faberge Egg broken glass base

May 2nd, 2010 Posted in All Repair Projects, Antique Glass Repair, broken glassware, Etched Glass, glass sculpture repair, Glueings

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 .

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.
