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.
