Antique Glass Repair broken crystal candlestick

The antique crystal candlesticks were dropped and broken.  We carefully reassembled them.  Antique glass candlesticks like these after repair set a beautiful dinning table.  Sent to me from Miami Florida for repair. The customer was very happy to get them repair because they came from Grandma.

Antique glass candlestick repair broken crystal top

This is what happens when you let your candles burn down .    When the candle burns down to the bottom the heat from the flame cracks the glass.  Antique crystal candlesticks

To prevent this from happening to your antique crystal candlesticks you can take a drill and drill up from the bottom about two inches . That will  remove the wick from the candle and the flame will go out before it can crack the glass.

The crystal bobeches were badly broken so I removed what was left of them and put new ones on. No one will know or care during the next candle lit dinner.

cstdThe age old question of whether hiring  a professional to make a repair or attempting to do it yourself is timeless. In this case, I was able to repair the original damage, and fix the damage from the attempted repair, as well.  The old glue had yellowed, and the super glue finger prints needed to be removed. This kind of glue may be able to stick a man to a steel beam, but it won’t repair a delicate glass candlestick. Super glue is the wrong adheasive for glass. By letting the candle burn too low the candle cup was cracked. This is a common repair, and easy for me to do- send it to a professional.

Crystal Repair Heisey Glass

Thursday, April 16th, 2009 Posted in All Repair Projects, broken glassware, Broken Stem, chipped glassware, Crystal Candlestick repair, Glueings | Comments Off on Crystal Repair Heisey Glass

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.

Before and after broken candlestick

Before and after broken candlestick

Broken crystal candlestick needs restoration. This has two broken candle cups caused by letting the candle burn down to low and the heat from the flame breaks the glass.  First  I ground off what was left of the broken candle cups and polished it flat. Then I made two new candle holders and attached them . Antique glass repair is a big part of my buisness.  I like fixing things that other glass shop said can’t be fixed. This customer was told it was irreparable. This was broken not chipped so a shop that can only grind and polish is unable to restore a pressed glass candlestick such as this.
