crystal repair broken decanter and stopper restoration

May 31st, 2014 Posted in All Repair Projects, Broken Decanter Repair, Stopper Repair

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 .
