A very old and beautiful decanter had a crack in it , was stained and part of the stopper was missing. The antique decanter with a silver collar had a locking stopper. That was a first for me . I have never seen a decanter like this.
The crack was running down from the neck so very carefully I turned the crack and made it run back up to the top. After removing the silver collar the broken piece was removed and the stains ( sick glass) were polish out .
Reinstall silver collar note key in lock.
Repair stopped by making new plug and grind and polish to fit decanter neck.
The replacement globe was very large and had a cut glass design. We used the old broken glass globe to make a mold used in bending the glass replacement.
The replacement convex glass was frosted and the cut glass design was drawn on it.
The design is cut in the glass using stones and hand polished.
The second largest chandelier in the world was in need of three replacement bobeches. I have made a lot of crystal bobeches over the years but not as large as these. They sent me a broken bobeche with a part missing. I made a mold and cast it in plaster to fill in the part the was missing.
I made the blanks .
Crystal bobeche twelve inch diameter
Drilled the 24 holes and added pins.
