Cut off bottom of crystal vase to make a clean smooth bond. Stronger and better looking repair.
Repairing the antique crystal vases of the future. Some one bring home the roses this vase is ready for action.
Broken into many pieces the antique glass came in for repair. It has been in the family along time and met so much could I repair it. I told them it would not be perfect but I would do my best . The first thing I needed to do was give it a bath. Then I dill out the broken fitter ( stopper ) out of the bottom. Then came the fitting of the pieces to see what was missing.
It was a shame that an antique glass piece the of this quality got broken and needed repair.
If you look close you can see the cracks . It will take just a little creative decoration and it can be displayed for all to enjoy. Antique crystal with the copper wheel engraving the quality of this piece are rare. Broken crystal after restoration doesn’t all ways come out flawless but you do have to look close to see the repair. Send in the flowers.

I am writing the following to attest to the great skill of the Bruening Glass Works, Inc. personnel. Several months ago my wife, while filling a Waterford Crystal vase with clean water, accidently tapped the base of the vase against the sink. The base separated from the body of the vase and sustained a substantial chip when it landed in the sink. We immediately called the jewelry store from where the vase was purchased to ask about its repair. They referred us to an outfit in Los Angeles, CA. We were told to send an email with pictures, and we would be instructed on how to proceed. Several months and six emails later I still had not heard a word from the California outfit. So, I did a goggle search for Waterford Crystal repair and the Bruening Glass Works, Inc. was one of the first entries. Being there were some nice testimonials, I emailed Marc at Bruening Glass. He responded immediately, and based upon our conversations (both email & telephone) we shipped our vase to him. In all honesty, we did not expect that much of anything could be done — we just wanted the vase to stand upright & hold flowers. We had written it off as far as it looking really nice ever again. We were extremely pleased and surprised when the vase was returned to us a couple of weeks later. Knowing what March had told us about the repair, we knew it would be a little shorter than when it was new (the broken parts had to be ground down a bit). Other than that, there was no evidence of any repair work. As far as we are concerned the vase is as good as new — the work is unbelievably good!!! In short, please do not hesitate to enlist the services of Bruening Glass Works, Inc. The craftsmanship is superb, its prices are reasonable, and the service is top-notch.
Thanks Marc for doing such remarkable work on an impossible repair.

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.
One broken Heisey Crystal candle stick needs repair, and it’s mate needs to be altered to match. This candle stick was badly broken below the candle cup and some pieces are still missing. Once the first candle stick is repaired I can shorten the other piece to make them a match set once again. Antique crystal such as Heisey is often signed. This piece with a small H inside a diamond.

one of them anymore! You’re an artist and I’ll certainly recommend you to
anyone that has a glass problem! Thanks so much…. Pat
A gorgeous Venetian glass bottle was brought to me for repair. The owner wisely researched many different repair shops before finding me. Not all repair shops have the experience to restore antique pieces like this one. I love doing this type of repair. The key to fixing this antique bottle was to find a new foot, and perform a transplant. The broken foot, or what was left of it, was cut off and polished flat. Using a UV cured adhesive, the new foot and the bottle were bonded together. The new foot was from a Venetian Vase from many years ago. My parts department (see picture) is the result of working with antique pieces for thirty years. I was pleased to find such a good match for this bottle, even the gold trim matched. Antique glass repair is enjoyable for me, and I truly love restoring antique glass artwork. In addition to crystal repair, I can blow glass, slump or bend glass, stain, paint, bevel, curve, engrave, etch, and cut glass.

Chandelier Back To Glory
Work is moving along on the chandelier. We rewired the chandelier and unlike most chandeliers the wires on this piece when in grooves in the arms not through a hole or tube in the arm.
