crystal repair vase broken bottom

Wednesday, November 17th, 2010 Posted in All Repair Projects, Antique Glass Repair, broken glassware, Glueings | Comments Off on crystal repair vase broken bottom

The customer came by with the silver liner that goes with the glass restoration .  This is rare that I get to see the whole piece together.     I send the glass back and never see it complete.

Broken for years and badly repaired the vase needed a new bottom.  I had to stop  the  two cracks on the side from going to the top.  With a process using tempature  I can control in witch direction the crack will go.
