The antique cut glass cruet was missing a stopper. It’s one of four cruets that fit in a sterling ring. With out the stopper the value would be greatly diminished.  I made  new crystal stopper.

A pair of Antique crystal cruets with a very delicate cut pattern were sent to me for repair.  The one crystal bottle was missing apart of the stopper. They sent along the top of the antique crystal stopper but the bottom had broken off and was lost. They also sent along one good antique cut glass cruet that need a stopper and one good crystal stopper.

crystal repair steuben bottle stopper

Wednesday, January 6th, 2010 Posted in All Repair Projects, Antique Glass Repair, Broken Decanter Repair, chipped glassware, Stopper Repair | Comments Off on crystal repair steuben bottle stopper

Its a small little chip on the bottom of the stopper. Steuben makes the finest crystal in the world but they made colored glass many years ago. This is one of the old ” colored glass”  Steuben pieces. They are very valuable so a small chip is well worth repairing. The repair is simple just grind the stopper down . The important part is to match the same grit size so the frosting on the glass is the right . I have been a crystal repair man for thirty years and I love glass. I get crystal sent to me from around the world and I very lucky to be able to repair so many nice pieces of glass.

Saturday, January 2nd, 2010 Posted in All Repair Projects, Antique Glass Repair, Broken Decanter Repair, Glueings, Uncategorized | Comments Off on crystal repair decanter broken neck

The crystal decanter had a broken neck and they were missing pieces. The crystal repair job was going to be more than a glue job. I needed to replace the broken neck .I cut off what was left of the old one and attached the new neck.  Its not a perfect match to the old neck but very close.
