Antique Glass Chandelier Repair / candelabra /crystal bobeche replacementDecember 31st, 2011 Posted in All Repair Projects, Antique Glass Repair, Antique lamp repair, Blowen Glass Replacements, Chandelier Repair
This antique crystal bobeche is from a late 1700’s early 1800’s candelabra that was electrified. I needed to make two replacement bobeches . The first step is to make the glass blanks.
Rough cutting the shape is next.
Using smoothing stones the glass is given a 400 to 600 grit finish and ready for polishing.
The replacement crystal bobeches are marked for drilling the holes.
I also made replacement arms for this chandelier shown in the picture. I will post picture showing the process I use to duplicate the solid crystal arms.
