The crystal pitcher has a very large chip on the rim. It will have to be reshaped .
The old crystal pitcher has been in the family for many years. It has served many cold drinks at grandmas house. The sentimental value is the motivation for the repair. A crack has run from the top down the left side of the handle almost to the bottom. The plan is to run the crack around the bottom of the handle and up the right side of the handle to the top. Controlling the path the crack takes is critical. I have spend years refining this skill.
It is ready to be used. The adhesive makes most of crack go away. Look close and you can see a little of the crack.
The crystal candelabra was broken and the pieces were missing.
Cue out the chipped part.
Fit in new piece off glass.
Cut in design and polish
Its not perfect but when it is back on the candelabra with the prisms installed you won’t be able to see the repair.
The broken globe was sent from Arizona . The contractor broke three globes on the job site while restoring and old court house. I knew I could make the new globes but matching the design on the globe was going to be the challenge.
