Steuben Crystal Vase Repair Sick Glass Cloudy Scratched

May 5th, 2010 Posted in All Repair Projects, sick glass, Steuben Crystal Repair

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.
