Steuben Crystal Vase Repair Sick Glass Cloudy ScratchedMay 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.
I polished out the scratches on the inside of the vase and then I polish out the scratches on the bottom of the vase .
