I was send a broken crystal bobeche from an antique chandelier. The antique glass bobeche was broken in many pieces and a couple of large pieces were missing. I cut off the part that was not broken .  I used a crystal bowl with the same design as the original bobeche to recreate the broken and missing  portion.  I needed to drill a large hole in the center and many small holes around the rim
