The wine glass has a metal stem but the crystal bowl was broken and needed to be replaced. The top of the wine glass is held in by an adhesive. I used a diamond drill bit to drill out the broken stem out of the meal stem.
I found a wine glass with the same shape bowl and cut it off its stem. Using an adhesive I bonded the new crystal top to the metal stem.
I repair all kinds of stemware. Water glasses, wine glasses, rock glasses and cordials most of them just have chips. Its cost effective repair crystal the repairs are fraction of the cost of replacement.

A beautiful red glass ” FABERGE EGG” with a broken base was sent to me for repair. This piece was made in Russia St. Petersburg as stated on the label. The copper wheel engraving of the double eagle is the main design with a very delicate boarder on the base .
Pieces had broken off the base and were lost.
I use a matching red glass to fabricate a new base . The engraved boarder matched the design of the Faberge Egg. Glass restoration like this is fun. A little creative thinking and for thought the glass egg will go back on display.
