The wine glass has a metal stem but the crystal bowl was broken and needed to be replaced. The top of the wine glass is held in by an adhesive. I used a diamond drill bit to drill out the broken stem out of the meal stem.
I found a wine glass with the same shape bowl and cut it off its stem. Using an adhesive I bonded the new crystal top to the metal stem.
I repair all kinds of stemware. Water glasses, wine glasses, rock glasses and cordials most of them just have chips. Its cost effective repair crystal the repairs are fraction of the cost of replacement.

Crystal punch bowls are very easy to break. The most common way is when the party is over you pour out the left over punch and put hot water in the bowl to wash it out. Old thick brilliant cut glass can not take temperature change. The thicker the glass the more vulnerable to cracking from heat. This beautiful cut glass punch bowl fell victim to hot water in the sink.
I can repair this bowl and it will be usable . The cut pattern hides the repair and makes it very hard to detect .
After the repair the restoration is hard to find.
