Crystal repair Lalique broken and chipped glass

Crystal repair Lalique broken and chipped glass

The  broken Lalique Crystal  statue was a present give to a customer in his eighties. He received it  when he was a young man.  It holds  great sentimental value and he wanted to repair it rather than replace it.  Some one tried to repair it. It was covered in glue and a number of large pieces were missing. I will need to recreate the missing piece.  

 

I use a foot from a broken Lalique compote to make the block .

 

Shaping the block to  form legs.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The final step is to etch the glass to match.  If you look close there is a small line were it was  glued.
