Victorian Antique Cut Glass Window for century home

Victorian Antique Cut Glass Window for century home

June 5th, 2014 Posted in All Repair Projects, Antique Glass Repair, Beveled Glass, Etched Glass

The windows have been broken for years .  You can’t go to the corner hardware store to get replacement glass for your century home. Old glass is not sand blasted.  It was frosted by hand  using an abrasive and rubbing it on the glass

The Victorian home was being restored and two of the window by the front door were broken .   I used  old  glass that has a wavy surface , some pits and small bubbles.   The glass lath  I used to cut the design is older than the windows.
