Waterford Crystal Repair chipped punch bowl

Waterford Crystal Repair chipped punch bowl

August 29th, 2010 Posted in All Repair Projects, Antique Glass Repair, Chipped Glass Repair, Waterford Crystal Repair

A common problem with punch bowl is  the ladle hits the inside rim and chips it.   I was sent two of the same pattern  Waterford Crystal Punch bowls one can from Chicago and the other came from New York.  They both had chips on the rim.  I polish out the chips and put a little larger bevel on the inside rim this will help prevent new chipping.

Waterford Punch Bowls

I have repaired many punch bowls made by many different manufactures . Waterford  bowls have nice thick glass on the top and  can be repaired .

Crystal punch bowl do not like hot water I have had to repair many bowl because of washing with hot water.   If the bowl has  cold punch in it you should pout it out and let the bowl warn up to room temp before washing.  Use warn water not hot. Hot water can crack the glass.
