Antique glass eye cup repair broken footDecember 8th, 2011 Posted in All Repair Projects, Antique Glass Repair, broken glassware
This is the first antique glass eye cup I have ever see and repaired . I tried it to see if it worked. I get pumice in my eye some times when polishing. When this piece was sent to me it only had a half a foot. I cut off what was left of the foot and ground the stem flat. I made a new green glass foot. When making a new foot it is important to add some imperfections. The old foot had seeds and cords in it. Seeds are small bubbles and cords are lines of distortion created from impurities in the glass .
I made a new foot for the vintage glass eye cup.
