Daum Nancy glass figurine repair chipped and missing ear restoration

April 27th, 2011 Posted in All Repair Projects, Antique Glass Repair, Blowen Glass Replacements, broken glassware, Chipped Glass Repair, Figurine, glass sculpture repair, Glueings, zoo

The ear was broken off and lost from a very expensive DAUM Nancy glass figurine.  I had to sculpt part of a new ear to fit on the dark amber Daum Glass horse .  Matching the very dark amber color was my first challenge . I made a dozen or more glass ears be for finding one I liked .    Daum glass  started with the notary Jean Daum      Daum  started making glass for watches and mirrors.            (1825-1885).
