Crystal repair Lalique broken and chipped glass

Sunday, November 25th, 2012 Posted in All Repair Projects, Antique Glass Repair, Figurine, glass sculpture repair, Glueings, LaLique Crystal Repair | Comments Off on Crystal repair Lalique broken and chipped glass

The  broken Lalique Crystal  statue was a present give to a customer in his eighties. He received it  when he was a young man.  It holds  great sentimental value and he wanted to repair it rather than replace it.  Some one tried to repair it. It was covered in glue and a number of large pieces were missing. I will need to recreate the missing piece.  

 

I use a foot from a broken Lalique compote to make the block .

 

Shaping the block to  form legs.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The final step is to etch the glass to match.  If you look close there is a small line were it was  glued.

Crystal Repair Antique Glass with chipped foot

Wednesday, March 28th, 2012 Posted in All Repair Projects, Antique Glass Repair, LaLique Crystal Repair | Comments Off on Crystal Repair Antique Glass with chipped foot

The antique  Lalique  Crystal cigarette  jar was broken years ago.  The foot had a very large chip out of it.  The chip was to large to be ground out so replacement  was the only option. Over the years I have saved many pieces of glass. My basement is like a junk yard of glass.   I found a Lalique Crystal foot in my glass junk yard.

 

Chipped Lalique Crystal Foot

The chipped glass jar was gram’s and sat on the coffee table for many years .  The antique glass jar held cigarettes back in the day when every one smoked.

Chipped wine glasses ,chipped water glasses ,chipped rock glasses, champagne  glasses and chipped cordial glasses can be ground and polished to look like new.  Crystal glassware is hand made and each glass is a little different size.  Stemware from the major manufactures can be very expensive and some times the patterns have been retired so repairing is the only option.

Antique Glass Repair LaLique Crystal Bird Bowl

Tuesday, March 22nd, 2011 Posted in Antique Glass Repair, LaLique Crystal Repair | Comments Off on Antique Glass Repair LaLique Crystal Bird Bowl

The bowl had a lot of scratches on the bottom and the bird had chips on its beak and tail .    I reshaped the head and beak .  Then matched the very fine etched finish.  The bottom with all the scratches and ware marks was hard to polish with out removing the signature.

This LaLique Crystal broken Base

This  LaLique Crystal piece was sent to me from Florida for restoration.  The crystal base had a large chip broken off the corner.  The piece that broke off had been lost many years ago so bonding the chip back one was not an option.

This beautiful LaLique  crystal ring got broken.  The hard part of this repair was the fact they didn’t have any of the missing pieces. So I had to create the glass piece to fit what was left.
