repair beveled glass lens for railroad oil lampJune 3rd, 2010 Posted in All Repair Projects, Antique Glass Repair, Antique lamp repair, Beveled Glass, Beveled glass lens
The lamp fell and two pieces of beveled glass were broken. The front lens was a diameter and I used a piece of old mirror because of the color. The newer glass has a very dark green color to the edge. The antique glass has a yellow not the green edge. I have repaired many Rail Road lights over the years. I used cast iron grinding mill to rough in the bevel.
I cut the antique glass and rough in the bevel.
