The ear was broken off and lost from a very expensive DAUM Nancy glass figurine. I had to sculpt part of a new ear to fit on the dark amber Daum Glass horse . Matching the very dark amber color was my first challenge . I made a dozen or more glass ears be for finding one I liked . Daum glass started with the notary Jean Daum Daum started making glass for watches and mirrors. (1825-1885).

This vase was in bad shape when it came in. The antique glass vase was cloudy from years of neglect. Leaving water in the vase with flowers in it stained the glass inside walls.
One glass was broken from the set. I made a new glass with bumps. The repair would have been seen. It was cost effective to make a replacement.
I have a lot of ways to get the job done. I can blow ,bend ,cast , grind , polish , stain, mill, drill ,bevel, stain, etch, carve, laminate, fuse, drip and transplant glass.
Done in time for the holidays it will make a great center piece.
This antique glass decanter from the 1880 was in bad shape. It had a broken neck and missing pieces from the lip. The customer was skeptical that I could repair an antique cut glass decanter in such bad shape. I can waite to forward this post to him with the before and after pictures of his decanter. This is a very old and very good cut glass decanter and it would be a shame not to repair it. I cut off the broken part of the neck and then made a new neck and lip. I attach the new neck and fit the stopper. If you didn’t know it was repaired you would pour a drink and just enjoy.
Many people don’t know this type of repair is possible please email this to your friends and family. Over and over I here I didn’t know you can repair glass I put it in the trash.

This is very old cut glass decanter with a broken neck. Its been in the family a long time and had to be repaired . With a diamond saw I cut the broken neck off the antique cut crystal decanter. I make a piece of crystal the same shape I cut off. It needed to be a little smaller so I could grind the stopper to fit.

This glass lady came to the United States in the 1950’s and has been broken a long time. Its a long boat ride from Venice Italy to the states.
I can repair the foot or make a new one. The cutomer wants the foot repaired first and if that doesn’t look good I will replace her foot and her mates.
Here’s a letter from a very satisfied customer:
Dear Marc and Brian,
The Waterford Christmas ornament arrived today and I just wanted to tell you how pleased I am with the repair. It’s perfect and my grandson will once again have his ornament on the tree.
