The antique perfume bottle has been in the family for many years it holds a lot of sentimental value .  The bottle has been broken for over fifteen years . The local glass companies and antique dealers in  Miami Fla. said it was not repairable .  Her husband persisted and told her she would find someone to repair it keep looking.

Antique Glass Perfume Bottle with broken neck

The antique amber perfume bottle was sent to me with a broken neck and broken dauber.  First step in the restoration process is to remove the broken neck on the antique glass bottle. Great care is taken to remove what was left of the neck with out damaging the bottle.
