If you let the candle burn down to the glass it will break.  The flame got to close to the glass and broke the top.  I have made many new tops for crystal candlesticks.  The teardrop candlestick by Steuben is my favorite.

Antique Steuben Glass Candlestick Repair Broken Crystal Top

The Steuben Crystal Teardrop Candlestick is one of the largest candlesticks they made.  It is very common for people to forget to put out the candles after dinner.   When the candle  burns  down the heat cracks the candle cup.  I have repaired  many of these over the years by making a new candle cup.

The dinner is over and you didn’t put out the candles .  They burn down and crack the tops of the crystal candlesticks.   I can make a new top cut off the old and replace it.

A every common event after dinner is to hear a little ping sound .  Yes you forgot to put out the candles and they burnt down and broke the top of your antique crystal candlesticks .  I used a pair of bobeches to recreate new tops.   Crystal repair requires a little out of the box thinking.

Waterford Crystal Repair chipped candlestick

Thursday, September 22nd, 2011 Posted in All Repair Projects, Chipped Glass Repair, Crystal Candlestick repair, Waterford Crystal Repair | No Comments »

The Waterford Crystal candle stick was sent to a shop for repair.  They ground all for corners to match and did not polish them.   The customer was very upset and sent the piece to me to be redone .   I ground the corners back to a point per original design and polished them.
