CRYSTAL DECANTER REPAIR CHIPPED AND BROKEN NECK

CRYSTAL DECANTER REPAIR CHIPPED AND BROKEN NECK

May 22nd, 2013 Posted in All Repair Projects, Antique Glass Repair, Broken Decanter Repair, Stopper Repair

The antique decanter had a large chip and a crack running down and across the neck.  Over the years the large chip that can off was lost.  The crystal decanter was also cloudy on the  inside from decades of use. The stopper was missing also.  The fist challenge was to stop the crack from traveling any farther.
