Chipped wine glasses ,chipped water glasses ,chipped rock glasses, champagne glasses and chipped cordial glasses can be ground and polished to look like new. Crystal glassware is hand made and each glass is a little different size. Stemware from the major manufactures can be very expensive and some times the patterns have been retired so repairing is the only option.
Waterford Crystal , Baccarat Crystal , Lalique Crystal , Steuben Crystal , Orrefors Crystal , Tiffin , Fostoria , Kosta Boda, Cambridge, Stuard, Hawkes Crystal, Daum Crystal, I have repaired them all.
Right out of the basement, the antique candelabra was in total disrepair. It was removed from the dinning room and placed in the basement . The bronze frame work was broken in several places. The antique wiring was fared and need to be replaced. The globes were dirty and badly chipped.
It had a broken center column.
The cut glass stopper was stuck in the decanter when it fell over and broke. The break was in the center of the stopper were it necks down .
I decided to make a new center section and plug . I used a glass rod to make the new part.
The new plug was ground to fit the antique glass decanter.
The glass rod was make of borosilicate glass ( pyrex ) so I was able to fire polish the new stopper.
The antique crystal decanter is made from lead glass so I had to hand polish the neck were the new plug fits
The stopper is finish and the decanter that has been in the family for many years can be passes on .
